Scratched up cat? Our oldest daughter and her family live just far enough out of town that they are an ideal dumping place for unwanted dogs and cats. A few years ago they were up to 28 cats and
then began to notice the number dwindling. One day
she found a cat with broken legs which she took to the vet. The vet showed her that something had had ahold of the cat and left claw marks in its
flanks. Checking after they got home, they found they had a big horned owl that was cleaning out the cat population. Apparently he had dropped the one from enough height that it broke its legs. To the owl cat probally tasted as good as rabbit.

Which reminds me of the ranch cook who had been serving up delicious rabbit to the hands. When they asked him how on earth he managed to catch them he replied that it was easy. " They come around the cook tent at night, Meow, Meow. "

Thanks to both replies.I don't know if we have horned owls down here (MS gulf coast) but we didn't want to shoot an innocent coon if we don't have to.And thanks for the laugh too.

We've had both and no trouble from raccoons cuz cats run alot faster - sounds like a tomcat claiming his territory - cats chase and trip and have claws. Any wet spots around his neck? That stuff looks bad but they heal fast. :)
