Lost Cat - A coyote was in the yard last night.....


A coyote was in the yard last night and the best damn cat I've ever known (understand' I'm not normally a cat person) was grabbed and taken away.  Our Mimi cat of (12 years) has been abducted.   We heard sounds of things outside our window getting pushed around. I grabbed the huge flashlight and spotted the very large coyote trying to get over the fence. Kris said that she saw Mimi the cat in the jaws of this beast. I only saw a big bushy tail trying to get over the fence.  Goodbye Mimi, you will be missed.
