If you have never had the pleasure of seeing an outdoor cat at work it is amazing. It's like watching the Nature channel. Well, it is watching the nature channel. A good cat will sniff the air, disappear in to a thicket and come out with a mouse/rat in it's jaws as happy as ever. What they do next is pretty cool too if you can stand to watch.
