While I was away, my favorite kitty, Oscar, was attacked by some raccoons. Here is Oscar in younger days:
Joe called me while I was in Kansas to report a wound back by Oscar’s tail. Hmmm…. we have a number of wild critters living here on the ranch, so I was thankful he had escaped.
Since Rex passed away, we have noticed more wild animals coming closer to our house- coyotes, skunks, raccoons, deer, etc.
Last night, we figured out that raccoons were coming through our cat door into the garage to eat the catfood. Joe saw one in the garage, so he blocked access and kept them out last night. We will do a permanent fix, since we need to keep our kitties safe.
I know you can buy cat doors that opens only if your cat wears a special collar. We tried this previously, but the cats just didn’t respond to training. I will look into it once again now.
Enjoy your week! Carla
