How can we keep the cat from leaving dead animals in front of our door??
One of our cats regularly kills and leaves small animals on our front or back steps-- any tips for getting him to leave the carcasses somewhere else?
They do that to show they are useful and work for the owners...
I deal with it on daily bases, i don't mind and can't advice on that! sorry
A couple of weeks ago we had a package delivery and when I opened the door I saw the guy had had to lean over to reach the bell because there were so many body parts on our doormat. Yikes! He didn't mention it, but it did look quite disturbing!
Your cat sees you as its kittens and in need of feeding.
This behaviour shows your cats wild instincts for caring are very strong. There is very little that you can do. Neutering may help so have a word with your veterinaey surgeon about that.
I know it can be troubling to find dead animals or birds presented on your doorstep. It is however a survival instinct for your cat, some people may term that as affection too. The present is food for your cats family, rather than selfishly eating it all himself he is bring it home to share so the family can eat and live.
I agree with the other people that commented. It's instinct for cats to do this. Another reason they do it is they are bringing them to you to make you proud. Like an offering. Looks like you have yourself a good kitty. I love a cat with hunter instincts. If a mouse or bug ever gets into your home by chance then you'll be thankful you have a hunter kitty lol. I really don't think there's a way to stop this though.
Keep your cat indoors. It's better for them. Indoor cats are healthier and live longer than outdoor cats. It also helps the local wildlife by preventing cats from hunting and killing them. One of the biggest reasons why many bird populations are getting smaller is due to hunting by cats.
Well I see that everyone has already told you the basic fact that they are getting this as a form of gift for you.
What we did was before anything was to teach our cat "NO". You can do this (it will take some time though) by saying no and spraying water at the cat the same time. But remember only for activities when you actually want to stop him. Once he is able to get the meaning of no, say it a few times when he is getting the dead animal. They only need your approval to show that they do give back some things and then he should ideally take it away and play with it.
Let me know how successful this is.
Sprinkle Olbas Oil on teabags and leave them on your front or back steps or even just sprinkle some on your steps. My mum often puts them in the garden to stop cats from peeing there or killing the birds.

For some time now, I've noticed that he drinks a lot more water than I'm used to seeing him drink, and sometimes he'll just lay around in front of his dish, only to drink more water before he either camps out again or...
