My cats are all indoor, but once in a while in the spring mice movie in and one of my boys has a heyday. Unfortunately he dosen't always kill them and they get loose in the house and I find them dead from fear. Literally frozen in position hiding. Sad. They don't really eat bugs, try to catch them occasionally, but would rather just stare them down.

I do take one of my boys (the hunter) out for walks on a leash, it seems to have calmed him down a bit and he's even lost a pound (he's a chubby). Even so, on his leash he's tried to catch birds, bugs, and the other day we walked next to a pile of branches and he grabbed a big bull snake. He's also chomped on a tree frog, but my landlady helped me get it out of his mouth. He's not hungry, just a hunter. If he were allowed out alone he'd kill all day long.

My landlady has a cat that catches several mice each day, dosen't eat them. The feral mom of my two boys used to catch mice all day, but she'd eat them.

This is pretty interesting. If the math on this is right my beloved, well fed, fluffy orange three legged cat Sebastian is killing upwards of 12 animals a week (mostly field mice but some birds). It's a sad but somehow impressive (he has three legs!) story. I love him anyway. He is kind of evil though.
