I own a small home in Mesa, AZ and have been in the same location for almost
ten years. I have one cat that is named Cooper, or Coopie for short. He's a
really good boy -- I got him at PetSmart about three years ago.
For some reason, I get many, many strays/feral cats at my house. They drift
on down to my place and I feed them because I just can't sit and watch an
animal starve to death. I've had about ten cats TNR'd in the past and have
three more to take care of shortly.
Even though I live in a residential area and not out in the country or the
open desert, there are numerous coyotes that roam this area. One of them
jumped my 6-foot wall a few years back and tried to haul away my former cat.
My cat was too fat to pull over the wall so the coyote dumped him (with his
ripped-open neck) and left posthaste. Those were the days I was dumb enough
to think a small doggie door would work for my cat. The repair for that
foolishness on my part was over $1,000.
This really isn't a bio, but I hope it will suffice. Thanks!
