My babies live inside at night and use my front door like a revolving door during the day! I feed between eight to ten feral cats daily. I know the hunt other smaller animals , since I started feeding them, I have not seem the amount of killers animals around my neighborhood!
Also the possums and raccoons eat the food I leave out at night!
I have not had any garbage can raids since I started feeding at night!!!
When I was a teenager my cat was let in the house and the door opener did not notice the bird in her mouth. I was sick in bed, and she hopped up on my bed to proceed to enjoy her fruits of her labor. I didn't mind so much she got a bird, I DID mind where she wanted to eat it. I had to call for reinforcement as I was in no shape to deal with it. Kitty girl was supremely pissed off to be denied her capture.
