My cat kicks ass, just caught a chipmunk last week and he's 14 years old! My cat, not the chipmunk...which made me wonder, just how long do chipmunks live? Evidently about 1.5 years in the wild but up to 10 years in captivity. Now you know.
I've witnessed it myself, Once two birds flew inside our front door, they both settled on the front curtain rod. I watched the cat jump and bite the first one in his mouth, at least a 7 foot leap. Half a second later again he had the second one in his claws, back to the floor with two trophies. Unbelievable
