Got Any Cat Snacks?

Saturday morning at approximately 9 am...I was stunned as I was sitting in my living room when I happened to casually glance out the window only to see a coyote running through my front yard.

You have to understand that I live about 10 minutes (by foot) from downtown...I often hear the music from the bars at night...I am that close...I know it's Northern Arizona, but on the other hand, it's hardly wild kingdom up here.

I have to say,
the coyote was beautiful...a shiny coat and looked well fed.

Perhaps on neighborhood pets as snacks?

Meena slept through the whole thing, which was hard for me to believe, as I was practically balanced on her head while taking pictures through the windows...Coyote's are a little sketchy, so I didn't necessarily want to hop out into the yard to get the perfect shot...and Meena had actually just been outside a little while before quite prossibly posing as cat on a stick...

I guess you never know what is lurking around the corner, eh?

Maybe this is a sign that I need to enjoy life fully because I just might end up as a snack for a predator.

I suppose that would be one way of solving the holiday season dilemmas this year...

(Sorry, The Grinch is on TV at the moment, and I'm a little confused seeing as we haven't had Thanksgiving yet...I often wonder what Dr. Seuss would think about that?!)

Splendid pictures but ... you have me worried -- I live another few blocks from the Square & my Max cat does love to spend the early evening outdoors. It's been a long, long time since a coyote was reported in my yard -- and as much as I'd like the opportunity to get photos as you did, I'm more concerned about my cat's good fortune!

OMG!!!!! I would have FREAKED!! We've only seen them a few times on the driveway but just a flash then they're gone. Thank goodness. And yes, they LOOOOOVE cats for dinner. One of their favorite foods.
