The cat probably brought it to someone's front porch as a "present"

At my old house, before we adopted our stray cat, all the strays in the neighborhood wanted to leave me such gifts. I was often finding dead animals on my porch

Any Verminators here that know more? DM me if you want to stay anonymous...and if your tip leads to an answer I'll give you some rep points.

(This is a serious question)
My friend has been finding headless rats too! Haven't seen one myself, but she has found several all in completely different places! I think its WEIRD! To say the least!

Yes, cats love to leave presents. It shows you the cat can be useful. Nothing like a good old fashioned mouser!! Be greatful, the alternative is a lot of mice crawling around your house.

they kill mice by playing with them really they just gnaw at their heads till they die, they also do that with birds, chicks, and yarn!

When I was gone, I had a neighbor watch my house. One of my big parrot fish died and my neighbor dumped the fish out in my front yard. When I returned from my trip, he said that the fish was eaten the next day. I wonder if it was a cat or a possum....or maybe it was little Mikey down the street...he eats anything.

A bird may have gotten it, too.

There is a dead baby skunk down the street--been there for weeks now. I guess they don't taste very good. He stank to high heaven the first couple of days but now it's worn off. Cute little guy...well, he was.

Nick....I've got my eye on your neighbor! Why would he just dump your poor fish in the front yard?

Were there any little remains left? My guess would be a raccoon.....but still...he could have buried the little guy....or at least used a trash bag. Geez...what a welcome home.

At least you didn't find a horse's head in the bed like in The Godfather.
