Holy fuck. I never really understood how they caught birds before, I assumed they had to sneak up on them.
How was this even caught on camera?
My one car jumps like this all the time. Technically all my cats started out as feral cats or children of feral cats. Only one of the three have the skills and instincts of a wild cat. She can jump the height of 6ft+ from a single point on the ground without any type of momentum except that created by springing off her back feet.
She is the dumbest yet most intelligent cat I know. She actually needs enrichment so much, that if we don’t play with her, she makes up her own games. She usually plays a series of games where she places food or toys in the water bowl and try to pick them back out again with her paws.
Cats have weird talents and instincts that I think a lot of people don’t see very often or understand.
