#9 Sorry to make you wrong, but many animals kills for fun. Cats are one of them. Even birds can kill for "fun" they can bully a cat to death :(

#9 Have you never seen a cat catch a mouse and then just torture it to death? Bite it just a little and then bat it around with its paws and then bite it some more? never eating it. Cats will find a nest of baby rabbits and slaughter them all without eating any of them,just for amusement. They do the same to bird nests when they find one. :(
Outdoor cats get trapped or shot where I live.

Cats are not 'torturing' their prey; they are responding to their instincts. They are stimulated by certain types of movement. If you hide you hand under a cloth and move it as a small animal would it stimulates the same response. The cat isn't smart enough to comprehend it's your hand and will attack.

The biting, batting and biting again is part of the cat's repetoire of hunting tactics. Many of the animals they hunt bite back. They tire out their prey with bites and such before moving in for the kill. Cats who are fed may get what they need to eat, but the instincts to hunt are just as much a need that they seek to satisfy. In these circumstances they may keep this behaviour up longer, but not out of a need to cause pain and suffering, which they wouldn't even be capable of understanding, but just because they are responding to the need for stimulation. Just as when they act out their disembowelling actions on a teddy bear, the fact it isn't alive doesn't matter.

Dogs will also slaughter a whole nest of rabbits because it stimulates them, just as they will chase and worry sheep until the sheep drop dead.

It is projection to say cats and dogs are being cruel in these circumstances as they don't have the cognitive capacity to understand their actions in such terms.
Trapping and shooting cats on the other hand, if done out of animus against them because they are believed to be 'cruel' is wrong. It is likely an excuse for the humans to act on their own cruel urges and excuse it by making out cats somehow 'deserve it'.
