Years ago, I lived in an apartment with my cat Sabella. Then a few years later, my now husband moved in and we acquired another cat, Phoenix. Sabella was a beautiful sleek black, whereas Phoenix was an extremely fluffy white. Both were indoor cats, but occasionally they would go out on the balcony onto the front lawn (we lived in a ground floor apartment and the front lawn was basically ours). Even though she was an indoor cat, Sabella was very adept at catching birds and being very proud, she would saunter back into the apartment and drop the half dead bird at my feet. More than once, I had the horrible job of having to finish off the bird, because it could no longer fly or walk, etc. Either way, killing a bird, was not an easy task, and certainly not one I enjoyed.
