Why do cats not eat moles?
Yet another cat question! My cat and also the neihbour's cat have both found moles but neither have eaten the moles - just played with them. My cat, I know eats mice. What makes the mole different?

They do not taste as good.

Some of these small animals protect themselves by having a special smell or taste that is repulsive to their predators.
Like the common shrew.

Probably too big and seen as more of an equal creature rather than a meal.

They may smell wrong to them. My cat catches mice , mostly the field mouse and birds but never eats them, always brings them home.
