Cannibal toms?

Once a tomcat has impregnated a female, he is pretty much out of the picture, and childrearing in cats is the work of the mother alone. In fact, tomcats have a nasty reputation for killing kittens, and while many people believe toms will eat kittens, this rarely happens. Oddly, toms seem to have a sense of which kittens are theirs, and they are much less likely to kill their own kittens that those of another tom.
