Could you spare a few? We have a high turn over where cats are concerned.

That would be hard being the .8 of the 3rd kitten in the litter.

Shelly, why do you have a hard time with cats staying around or alive? Owls and Bobcats are hell on ours, plus a stray tom cat that kills.

I think it might be coyotes? We've found them mangled or they just completely disappear, but we will find signs of battles because there'd be blood stains around the yard.
