The cat sometimes do get them. I've seen it happen and it happens very quickly. Mynahs were shrieking after that. People chased after the cat but the cat simply ran off with the prize.

yes, in a flash. there's no time for the bird to react. i have seen it happened before. a mynah too, but i think pigeons are easier prey. :)
