Below: A highlight from Oatmeal's summary of actual research on the predatory patterns of domesticated house cats that are allowed to roam outside:
Be sure to read the entire comic. It's great (& a little scary). The Oatmeal also links to the University of Georgia Kitty Cam project that collected the data on cat predation. They include several sample images and videos from the Kitty Cams, including this great one of a kitty bringing home a chipmunk and mewing pathetically to be let in.
