Coyotes love Kitties

June 26th 2014 Granton, Ontario.
I woke up at 12:10 am to sounds of patio furniture crashing around our front porch and our young male cat swearing his head off.
I ran downstairs and turned on the porch flood lights and there was a large female coyote standing 10' from my door and a scared cat hiding under the legs of a chair with cat fur every where.
I opened the front door and jumped off the porch making as much noise as I could.
The coyote was gone in a flash and last saw her jump clear over the electric fence across the road.
The cat had a sore paw and lots of bare patches, but seems to have learned to keep his head up outside.
We regularly hear a group of them during late spring and through the summer, and tonight, August 28, 2014 I was just walking back to the house from the road at 9:30 pm and a group of howlers started up across the road.
They've been hanging around the farmer's cattle all summer for some reason, and tonight he came out and fired off a couple shots and that seemed to clear them out.I'm so glad your cat is safe, it probably would be wise to keep him in when possible - in some areas the Coyotes seem to take a lot of cats!
