"Jenny’s Adopted Brothers" from Jenny and the Cat Club by Esther Averill (1952)
"Coyotes might even help protect some of the state’s many protected bird species — by picking off free-ranging house cats."
Dena told me that our neighbor, who is also missing a cat, said he suspects they may be victims of coyotes, who were recently heard in the area. If that is really the case, I hope Bobbles put up a bitchin’ fight. Like, sorry I contributed to upsetting the balance of my local ecosystem, Nature, way to break my heart.
