Tammy Simpson knew that Ginger the cat wasn’t generally the best hunter – except when it came to stalking baby moose. Over the years, in fact, the kitty has become obsessed with watching the creatures from her porch. But then one day, Ginger hunkered down into a stalking position and silently approached the calves.

Of course, big cats are expert hunters, and even their domesticated relatives are efficient little killing machines when they want to be. Indeed, they’re somewhat renowned for bringing hunting trophies back for their owners and leaving them on their porches. Not all cats are very good at it, though.

Take Ginger, for example. According to her human, Tammy Simpson, even though Ginger’s an adult, she’s never really developed an understanding of the food chain. “She hasn’t figured out how to hunt despite the fact that she’s seven years old,” Simpson told The Dodo.
