Cats are feral. No two ways about it. Cats are feral. They crouch down, swish their tails and they pounce on their prey. Housecats just crouch down, swish their tails and pounce on lizards and sick birds and stuff. Many of them bring their prey home and deposit them on the porch. If they are well fed (with Watchtower Approved(tm) "No blood" cat food HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!) they won't eat their prey, because they are too full of canned cat food to satiate their hunger. But they still prey, though.
Bigger cats like lions also prey. The females do all the work, and they must wear a head-covering while they prey and while the male lions take their naps. It's a guy thing. Male cats have figured it all out. Get a big mane, have a whole bunch of females doing all the dirty work, give them a little sex once in a while, and retire. What a life those male lions have. Kinda like many male humans, methinks.
It was not this way 4,000 years ago. Lions would still crounch down and they would still swish their tails, and they would still run like hell until they finally caught their prey............,,,,,,,,,,,,straw! They would stalk and hunt and finally capture that straw and then would drag that straw back to thier young ones, so the young ones could feast on that straw.
Please enjoy your lion who hunts, stalks and finally captures STRAW in the New World, folks! I'm sure they will still crounch and swish their tails, because straw is a very elusive and fast-moving prey. You never know where straw can hide out when it is being hunted by a lion.
