Okay, so recently Isis has started becoming very violent towards the general rodent population in our neighborhood. Normally this would thrill me, I love encouraging her natural hunting instinct and allowing her full feline nature to flourish and what not but, now she has started squirrel hunting. She has brought two dead squirrels into the house already, and this last one was in the process of being disembowled for dinner (I'll spare you more graphic detail). She is fed twice a day, and is at a healthy weight, so I know she isnt hunting for a food source. My main concern is that squirrels are nasty, and we're in CO so many of the rodents carry strains of the plaque (in addition to other potentially fatal diseases). Can she catch anything from murdering the squirrels, aside from a potential backlash from the local squirrel populuation? I'm going to post this in a health forum also, so sorry for a duplicate post!
