11. She's just doing what cats do
It's her natural hunting instincts. Plus, cats are social creatures, and in the wild, they all share the bounty of the hunt. She feels like she's earning her keep by bringing the food back home for everyone to share.

Contrary to urban myth, cats do not kill just for the fun of it or play with their prey. They're efficienct predators who hunt to survive. Domesticated cats often express their natural hunting instincts through what we humans consider "play," but this doesn't mean cats will kill for fun. She's just trying to be a useful member of the family by bringing home food!
