So the Family Cat Becomes Coyote Dinner

Original post made by respect my property, Pleasanton Heights, on Mar 30, 2011

I have to wonder just how the coyote opened the door and got into that house to grab the cat. Oh, you left your cat outside all day and night? Well that would be just like my neighbors who think that cat hair on my patio furniture, muddy paw prints on my new car and cat poop everywhere in my yard is just fine. Or the dog walkers who stop and let their dog make deposits on my lawn because they think their precious pet is entitled to do it.
Pet owners are not so very special. Many of them are self-centered and arrogant. So I wonder if anyone knows where I can get my very own coyote. Hmmmm, tie him in my yard on a leash just long enough to cover all of my property. Your pet trespasses, my coyote gets fresh meat for dinner. Talking nicely to these people has not helped but I am just thinking that making coyote brunch out of Fluffy or Fifi might do it. Yeah, bring on the munchies.
Or better yet, people, do the right thing. Keep your pets INSIDE and when they are outside pick up after them! "Curb your dog" means let them poop in the curb not on my lawn -- even if you plan to pick it up!. Thought I needed to say that since the "pet-entitled" in this town have a hard time grasping subtle things. Or using common courtesy.
Craigslist here I come. "Wanted, one hungry coyote".

Want to go halves on that coyote? I could use a little frontier justice on my property as well. The pervasive pet-centric lifestyle in Ptown has really gotten out of control.

I too have neighbors who let their cats run free - they should read this article and follow the advice of the humane society:

"The humane society generally advises residents to keep domestic cats indoors,"

The "Wed" news around Bay Area is a bit misleading. San Anselmo ? Redwood City ? animal stories, and other general 'news' that I read in my papers a WEEK ago ! Distant and old, neither are "news" in my opinion. PW is getting pretty lame. It was so much better when we could have seriously committed debates and discussions. It's good for ideas, transition considerations, and healthy venting...like a purposeful Town Crier.
Are sponsors hanging in there ?
