House cats are perhaps the cruelest killers in the world outside of humans, so fitting that kitty leaves the quarry for its master to finish the job after torturing the hell out of a captured cardinal. I’d like to believe the cat is thinking, “Oh, you like watching this so much? Well, YOU finish the job.” I’d condemn these owners more harshly for sitting there gleefully filming this, but I took pictures when my cat did the same to a bird she caught on my balcony. In my defense, if a bird is dumb enough to get caught on an apartment balcony, I’d argue that’s nature taking its course more than anything.
