I'll start by saying I adore my cats. They are everything to me and have a lovely life. My little cat is about 3 year old and is an out and out hunter. Cant see how as she's not built for it. She's tiny, super long haired but she catches everything. Problem is she brings the catch into the house always alive then lets it go as soon as she gets thru the cat flap. Then has great fun chasing it round the whole house. Alot of the time its mice and they run under something and under the floor boards etc. This is always done at night when were asleep which means I have to get up and try catch it/find it etc. Sometimes she eats it alive when she hears me get up. This happens every single night without fail. Sometimes twice, sometimes three times. Recently its been rabbits. Total nightmare. Thing is i'm now 5 months pregnant and this cant continue. She already wears a coller with 2 big bells on it. I dont want to shut her in or out as I have other cats. What the hell else can I do?

Sorry also add have tried to shut off some of the rooms so they come thru the cat flap into the hall way and whilst this makes things a bit easier to catch I still have to get up to catch whatever it is. Last night it was 3 times at 1am, 4am and 5am.

Lock her in overnight, night time is best for bunny and mouse hunting, daytime for birds.

Ours is in the kitchen overnight with a tray.

It's the only way to stop her, bells don't work as your puss is demonstrating.

Ours comes in 9-11 so we grab him and put him to bed. He does hunt birds in the day but he seems better at killing them than mice for some reason.
