    Depends on where he picks it from. Most cats would fight a lot if grabed and probably wound the own badly, otherwise it also depends on the size. Maybe a middle-mall female cat would be a easy target, a adult male cat would probably be a no-no

    yes, cats are actually the only bird of prey that regularly eats cats.
    ironic since they fill the same sort of evolutionary niche

          Thats not divisive, its a fact.

          Cats do not and have never controlled or removed rodent populations. Owls have.

      Dang, I didn't think a Barred Owl was strong enough to carry off a cat.

    There's a great horned owl that's been living in my backyard for a while. Last night I saw it for the first time with its huge wingspan.
    I have a large cat that I let out until midnight or so. Nothing will happen to her right?

    I've seen cooper's hawks pick up cats and fly off with them. It seems pretty obvious to me that larger owls would be able to do the same.

    Great Horned and Great Grey owls will eat cats. If an owl swoops something she can't lift, but she's able to subdue it, she will eat the prey item on the ground and then leave when she full.

    One of my neighbors once found their large family cat (over 10 lbs) dead and partially consumed in their front yard, vet and the U both said probably Great Horned Owl.

      I thought Great Greys only ate rodents. They look big but they're like 95% feathers, unlike a Great Horned which is made of 95% anger.

      That's frickin savage. I guess there are no bigger predators in most places that will scare off an owl, at least at night.

    Depends on the owl. A GHO or an Eagle Owl probably could.

    >Predation on felid is uncommon though eagle-owls are known to prey on domestic cats (felis catus) and European wildcats (felis silvestris).

    I live in montana and it's common for country cats to get picked up at ranches farms ect. My cousins cat had this happen to it. It was meowing from under the deck and when he climbed under there was blood, hair missing, and a decent wound on his hind quarters leg area. Vet suspected owl, Now I guess the cat refuses to go outside regardless of day or night.

    Depends on the owl species. There are owls smaller than 6 inches. Even the biggest are unlikely to be able to do it though.

    Owls can lift about 5lb
    Cats weigh 8-10lb
    So typically no.

    Probably not an average-size one. Cats are wriggly and surprisingly strong for their size. A small or young one though? Maybe.
