Why does my cat sometimes put icky “treasures” on my doorstep?

Because your kitty thinks your stalking skills could use some work. Biologists think cats share their kills out of motherly instinct. Mama cats bring minced mice and battered birds to their kittens to teach them hunting skills. Trying to stop your cat from hunting and sharing is like asking your brother to stop stinking up the bathroom – it’s battle against nature!

Cats, in spite of being solitary hunters, are a social species, and communication between cats includes the use of a variety of vocalizations (meows, purrs, trills, whistles, grunts and growls), as well as cat pheromones and types of specific body language for cats.
