My cat is generally a lazy cat who usually would rather eat cat food than go chasing after mice. Of course every now and then he'd catch one for one, but it wasn't his main source. Since the weather change, he's been catching and eating at least 1-2 moles/mice per day, and these are just the ones he SHOWS me. See, he doesn't give me presents because he spent his whole childhood in the wild catching food for survival, so when he does get a mouse, he usually runs and hides to eat it. But lately I've been catching him a LOT more often ripping into a mouse.. and it's bothering me. I know that cats naturally eat mice, but it can't be that good for him. Plus he gets hairballs from eating them. I wish he'd let me toss them but when I get close he runs. So it's kind of a lost cause. Is this healthy?
