Why do cats hunt when they have food? — 3 Comments

  1. Loved Albert’s comment. Many animals are predatory, cats included. It’s instinctual for them and not so much for the human animal. My cats rarely capture any prey, but a rolling dust ball will put them into a frenzy trying to capture. So, it’s a lot about play as opposed to any hunger.

  2. I’ve watched my cats for almost two decades, and though they rarely catch anything (fewer than one per year) the exercise is beneficial to both prey and predator.
