During the hunting functions,
there is a need of correlation of many anatomical structures and
by muscular activity, even the tail is kept in twitched position
with great intensity and the impulse travel through nerves are of
immensely useful in this action.
Cat has no lateral jaw motion and similarly, rudimentary molars
are present in cats, indicating on the lesser need of molar grinding
actions in cat species. In hunting functions, the command from brain
gives thrust for muscular activity in cat, thus leading to the successful
placement of the sharpened claw that is in retracted status over
the prey species and this helps the hunting functions effectively
The hunting functions obliterate the fear reflex in cat species and ultimately, when the cats exercise the hunting functions, adequate contraction of insertion points of muscles occur. Hence, there is a coordinated movement of limbs, jaws, ears, tail etc. and finally, hunting event happens in cats. Any disturbance in any of the anatomical structures in cats will ultimately have some impact in the hunting functions and there may be disturbances in muscular functions and derangements in hunting finally.
