They technically can. All a cat needs to do is attract the attention of the birds so it can stare them down.
The bird will be blind to the fact that it is already flying too near to the cat.
They’ve already been tackled and caught before they even get there.
Some cats, particularly domesticated cats, do not catch birds to eat them; rather, they are captivated by this small species with which they do not regularly engage.
You have to remember that cats are predators, and although they have no intentions of eating the bird, they will still do their best to catch it.
However, not all birds are attracted to your cat’s lovely and enticing gaze.
Take, for example, an owl. Owls, like cats, have predatory instincts.
They have sharp beaks and talons and hunt mice, frogs, and birds, but giant owls require a lot of food.
As a result, they chase large creatures such as dogs, cats, and foxes.
Can cats hypnotise birds, then? It is dependent on the bird’s nature.
Yes, if the bird is little, cats can easily hypnotise it.
However, if the bird is large or even carnivorous, you must be cautious because your cat’s magical abilities will not work on it.
If you see an owl while walking with your cat, don’t stop to allow your cat take a close look at it because that enormous bird can be on the hunt for its next meal!
