The instinct is to hunt, I believe. [long story] we had a hamster
visit us. The younger cat somehow got it out of its cage and
'played' with it during the night. She also used to catch birds
also and leave them on the porch intact. In the morning I
discovered the hampster. I am not a morning person so I stepped
over it and decided that I needed a cup of coffee before I took
care of it. The old cat heard me moving about and also woke up.
When I came back into the room, he was busily eating the hamster
while the younger cat looked on. After that, the only evidence
that the younger cat had caught a bird was a few feathers.
