My cats use to catch birds and bats (I have two and they would work together in catching their prey- even though they do not get on otherwise..)-they would just play with them (dead or alive)- though nothing was left gory behind (apart from one case)
But then we told them off when they would bring them into the house so they have stopped doing it They are lovely really
It is in their nature to act as predators (gives them a thrill) and they bring it home to you usually as a present (apparently sign of gratitude)..

We had three pigeons that lived in our garden - two adults and a baby. The baby had only just started coming out with the parents when we saw our cat attacking it. It was a bit too big for her to manage so she just left it there. There were fluffy white feathers all over the garden - such a mess and I was really upset for the parent pigeons. I was so angry with her for doing it that I wouldn't stroke her all day.
Edit: We also have birds that live in the shed and when the door is slightly open she would stand at the door so they couldn't go out and the birds would be going mental. She didn't even give them a chance!

We live behind a field and our cat is a brilliant hunter, but we've fortunately managed to train her to never bring her prey inside any more. She's caught all sorts (a HUGE bird once, and she can carry birds without injuring them as well, so that she can 'play' with them later, ughhh) and eats mice etc in pretty much their entirety, only ever leaving behind the skulls. It's gross, but I really have to admire her stealth!
