Today, we're off to Athens, Georgia where National Geographic's Crittercam team, and scientists from the University of Georgia used special cameras to find out more about feline hunting behavior.
The footage revealed a cat prowling a neighbor's garden, a trip down a sewer and of course hunting and more hunting. Small lizards topped the list as favorite prey.
One big surprise was that several cats had adopted second owners, even dropping by to get extra meals!
