    We tend to let ours keep the ...presents, but outside - And most are just ...partial presents :urggh! But she only catches them once or twice a year.
    Also I made the mistake the first time of returning the big thrush she caught once, to the tree. Half our later she came in with two baby birds as another gift. And I found the original thrush dead anyway. So I leave her to it. She catches mice sometimes so she earns her keep.

    Hah! Not dirt! :eek:
    Ours would like to be an inside cat...but she comes into our room at 2am and wants to talk!
    I've woken up and she is staring down at me meowing at me while head bumping me ... At 3am ish .
    My wife sometimes gives in. Big softy.

    She's funny. Birds always come inside, live mice get brought inside but dead mice stay outside. I don't quite understand it, but there's obviously a method

    Ours leaves us alone at night unless something is really bothering her, which is very rare and usually a closed door she wants into.

    The mornings though she is little miss attention magnet and needs your full and undivided devotion. After that she patiently waits (howls and bothers you) until the kid is up so she can have her little treat of special food. Then she is perfectly content for you to stay out of her way for most of the rest of the day.

    She has caught a couple of Geckos that got into our house in Texas, she has never seen a mouse. The half Geckos were left lovingly beside the bed strategically place right where I put my foot as I exit the bed.

    This is an EDCat. It's not mine. Just stops by to look at gear. (Old pic but felt the cat would fit in.)

    She is allowing it, at the time it was amusing her.

    After over a year without a cat around we have finally got round to it. No name yet, she is a 6 month old rescue cat who is very timid and scared of her new surroundings. She's totally black except for a couple of white hairs on her breast.
    Bad picture but it's the first (of many) one. She likes the hiding places at the moment

    "Zep" would have been my suggestion. But that might be more for a male.

    Our black cat usually brings dead critters to the door over night. Occasionally, he'll bring a live present. Several weeks ago, he brought in a live duckling. He was so proud! The girls were so freaked! I took the duckling and returned it to its mother in the pond out back.

    Ours too! It's more fun to play with them inside, apparently. Our Jasmine likes it so much, she brings her live mice up ONTO THE BED!
