The cat flings the prey about to establish if it is actually dead or just playing at it. When they are sure the prey is dead, they will eat it. Mice, rats, shrews, voles/small birds can all bite/peck the hell out of a cat face when fighting for their lives, this is why cats play with their prey, to make sure it is dead and not a hazard to them.

A mysterious girl who is said to have no thoughts or desires besides that of what her master expects of her. Because of her “doormat” behavior, other characters tend to project their wants or desires onto her, and she’s always the target of their eventual rage. Her past and current personality are simultaneously tragic and sinister, and her personality shifts between selfless love, passive-aggressive revenge, cruelty, and learned helplessness. Like Utena, Anthy also subverts and conforms to the stereotypes she embodies as both a damsel in distress and a witch.
