the raccoon

June 19, 2012

It appears that it’s not so uncommon for cats to be eaten by raccoons. A small-medium sized racoon had been spotted in Chicken and Coco’s backyard about a month ago in day time. And for a while even before that there had been signs of a larger aggressively hungry animal tearing through the large bags of dried cat food stored in the garage. Chicken and Coco usually rest at a high shelf there; and what’s interesting to point out is that they had moved their favorite spot further from the edge even though their bed had been there for years. Considering the fact that Chicken was locked out of his home the night he went missing and that there weren’t many small mammals hunted by Chicken or Coco appearing at the front porch as ‘gifts’, it can’t be helped but to imagine a very hungry racoon close by the same night. Furthermore Cole who is out at night close by is missing too. And according to this article, a racoon can eat cat after cat. http://www.bear-tracker.com/raccoonpredationoncats.html As stomach twisting and heart wrenching as it sounds, what may need to be done is try to determine where a racoon would hide his food or how it would leave a mess of cat fur and bones. 😦

Coco is hands down a companion-cat. He follows his family members every where; he can follow on the sidewalk with no problem. He would watch his folks intensely with curiosity and stay close. It’s probably safe to say Coco is much like a loyal dog as he also comes when he is called. This is one thing that makes Coco different from his brother as well as the fact that Coco is much more calm than Chicken. In the near future, Coco would definitely be allowed to roam indoors close to his folks; Chicken and Coco could only stay in certain rooms. Now that Chicken is gone, it is difficult to see Coco more alone.

Turns out the black cat really lives with Jack Attack, and his name is Cole. His folks say he’s gone missing for about two weeks now. Is it possible that a catnapper is out there taking Cole and Chicken some week/s apart? If Chicken does have a new home, his folks wish at least to know about it.

The city’s offical pound have been called along with a lost animal form filled out. Chicken has been called around the neighborhood. Some door to door have been tried too. What’s next is the scavenger hunt such as under bushes and in corners. Also, large bright posters: http://www.missingpetpartnership.org/recovery-lostcat.php The sad thing is the home owners association take the fliers down every time as if they have nothing better else to do.

Chicken and 3 nights :(

Chicken was locked out from his home one night and has not come back for 3 nights already. His folks are worried. His brother is noticeably sleepless too. 😦
