It's not always about feeding the cat's hunger. It's a natural instinct for a cat to stalk. We had cats growing up and they often brought us little "dead thing" gifts. Even if the cat couldn't get to the budgie while in the cage, it would certainly frighten the bird. Something you don't want to do.Sheather- thanks. I have been looking for breeders, just because everybody says that that they are cheaper and tamer, but I'm unsure if I want a budgie. I am going to my mom's friends house soon to meet her cockatiel, and I am hopefully going to somebody else's house to meet their budgies. Yay! My cat was born a farm cat, my grandma has tons of farm cats. We picked her out, and she isn't a cuddly or wants much attention cat. But one time we put her in the garage, and my dad caught a mouse (live) and put it in front of her. She had no clue what to do with it, her food, like you said, is from a bag. Thanks.
