Steve is our hunter cat; yet since he is Basement Cat, he gets little opportunity to catch anything. However, he is stealthy and has caught 2 birds in the basement over the past two months. How does he do it? No one knows.
The birds are now in our attic, due to an unnoticed hole in the eaves of the house. A humane solution would be to set up a trap and release program to catch the baby starlings. I think however that I would do better to let Steve have run of the attic for an afternoon.
