Veni Vidi Vici
Sometimes humans make excellent dinners in the hopes of entertaining their friends and family over a lovely evening. Instead, your pet cat has a different plan in mind when they discover the table is all set with tasty looking turkey and other meats. That cat is now the sole owner of said food, so you had better not cross him.
The backyard has a lot of unusual happenings, including birds, bugs, small children, large, grown adults, and perhaps even a little dog or two. A cat will find this hunting ground to be the ideal place to perfect their catch and release methods, or perhaps they will just practice their ambush tactics before messing with you in the middle of the night.
