Jason was never feral, but he is a pretty good hunter, even though missing his front claws! He has taken birds (rarely) further from the house, but I suspect they were not healthy to begin with.

than be caught by cats.

Auralie - I let a lot of things reseed all over the place too. One nice
thing about having a bird & butterfly habitat is you can tell people
it's supposed to look that wild and they don't know any different! But
don't grow catnip because I don't want cats in the yard eating my
