Feeding experiments were carried out to estimate ratio between ingested amounts of prey, and undigested part of that same prey in faeces (=correction factors) of the domestic cat in Southern Sweden. It was found that only hair and feathers in faeces could be used to estimate such ratios. Variations in the ratios found were wide for large prey like adult rabbits. To determine amount of prey eaten per cat and day, defecation rate was also determined.
