|Our little Timmy - missing since Sept.|
My next door neighbor came over last night to let us know, her cat, Bella is missing. That's the 2nd cat she has had that has gone "missing." She thinks we have a cat-killer in the neighborhood - in 1 year her and I we've lost a total of 4 cats.
Something is not right with that picture.
I have racked my brains to try and figure out what is going on with the cats in our neighborhood. One neighbor called a few months ago, saying they saw a raccoon and the story is, it is killing cats. Just outside this sub-division, we have coyotes and mountain lions. It's just a 3 minute up the hill, and you're in a more rural rugged area.
I can't even imagine, not having a cat. But it is heartbreaking to love a kitty and then they are gone. Miss Buster goes outside but not at night and she does stay in the backyard during the day if she chooses to be outside. She's my little garden kitty.
We were going to get a kitten this spring but now I just don't know. If only I could keep them in the house PERIOD. Our house is too active - with comings and goings all hours of the day and night and sometimes a door could be left ajar, where a kitten could get out.
You'd think in a metro-area you would be forever losing your cats to traffic deaths etc - but I have never had cats go missing when I lived in the bay area.
I wish I knew what was going on - but its one of those mysteries we'll probably never know.
