Can Magpies Kill a Cat?

Magpies can hurt cats, but this is quite uncommon. For most parts of the year, magpies are unlikely to inflict any harm on anything in general.

Why Do Magpies Attack Cats?

A magpie might attack a cat if the cat gets close to the magpie’s nest or nestling.

A magpie may also attack a cat if that cat had attacked it in the past.

If your cat stalks a magpie, the magpie might react by attacking the cat.
