There weren't as many cats as I thought there would be, and I only saw three kittens, but it's not kitten season, either. Most of the dogs were pit bulls or big dogs, but there were some smaller ones, too.

Oh shelters are chock full. Just wait until kitten season, which is right around the corner. People don't have enough sense to spay/neuter. Actually, what I was referring to in my Pendleton shelter comment was towards all the guys/gals, that are being deployed, and have found no choice, but to give up their pets to the Shelter. Heartbreaking for sure!

I know, I'd like to have more pets, but just can't do it. It's probably a good thing that I rent, because I'd have a lot more!

LOL I think my houses have always had neon signs over them:" Dump your pets here,I'll give them a great home"! We're full here....just can't afford to feed and vet anymore and keep us fed too! Plus my vacuum already works overtime!

I moved in with no cats, but since there were several strays, I started feeding them. My two were left behind by former tenants, and they're both senior cats. I was told that they were outside for 10 years, of which I don't know whether that's true or not.

One cat moved in after three months, the other after four years. Neither of them have any desire to go outside again. And there are "extras" that come around, that would love to move in, too!

Awww...what a big heart you have! Thanks for being so kind!


AND...just to keep this thread on tract....another coyote trotting across the back property early this morning around 7ish. I went out the back door and as soon as he heard the door open and saw me, he ran away like his tail was on fire! He/she was very small.....maybe 30 lbs. If nothing else, our Golden out weighs, this guy anyway, by 70 lbs!

I live in the city, and don't live close enough to where the coyotes are, and I haven't seen or heard any since I've been here. But when I lived in Tucson, they would walk across the street in the downtown areas in the middle of the day. When I lived in Sacramento, I worked in an office building in an area that wasn't totally built up yet, and I used to see and hear the coyotes, along with wild turkeys, pheasants, rabbits, and of course, stray cats.

This comment was posted on the Channel 8 news website. It's from the son of the woman that owned the dogs.


My mother was the owner of these dogs so I thought I should leave a comment: First of all, I agree 100% with some of you that people like my mom should not own dogs. My mom actually has a history of getting dogs and then giving them away months later when they become too burdensome for her. I hate to say it, but she's just kind of an irresponsible person. A couple corrections: This attack happened in Rancho Santa Fe (where my mom lives), not East County. Secondly, my mom's property is surrounded by a pretty tall fence (probably 6 feet, but not certain), but my sister told me she saw the coyotes jump over the fence! My sister was the one who ran out of the house and saved the dogs. Anyway, I hope Sophie and Leni find a loving home (Lulu was actually Leni's twin, which my mom discarded about a month ago. I guess now they're both at the same shelter?)

SMH I have no words......except that: the dogs are so much better off.

Well, I wouldn't know, but you are probably right- especially if you are hunting yotes. But to just be left alone, a pyr is a great bet too!

No sane yote would mess with one of those. Not even a pack. Too much risk of getting injured.
