    Must be the cats’ version of “the boogey man” (or snake). Everyone likes a good scare once in awhile.

    Predators, Varnes. Cats are natural predators.

    Cats are both predators and prey. Coyotes, wolves and some birds of prey as well as large snakes and aligators will kill and eat them if they can

    Yes, now it’s time for Gene to appear.

    Yeah, watched five Cooper’s Hawks circling overhead yesterday over my backyard. They were watching three feral cats that live in the neighborhood. Originally, there were seven cats now we are down to three. The hawks are taking their toll(or dinner).

    I once had a hawk swoop down and grab my cat right in front of my eyes. It was horrible – like watching a crucifixion.

    Most popular stories around the campfire are all about killer bears and deranged hook-handed axe murderers, right? What was that noise?!?!

    My daughter won’t let just one chicken out (we have one that lives in a cage indoors because she was not raised with the others) because of the hawks. The chickens are all let out, or none. Safety in numbers.

    The indoor chicken has a cage-mate, Bob, who has a neurological disorder and would be killed by the other chickens if not watched constantly.

    Lot’s of hawks here in the northeast now, freakin big ones too. 30 years ago, there were practically none and we’d have 20 pigeons in the yard at the feeders. Now, three pigeons. Saw one get taken one day. It’s blindingly fast, a streak of light, a swoosh sound in the air, whammo, feathers fly everywhere, before you even realize what is going on, and flap, flap, flap, up, up, and away…’s a bitch sometimes.Once saw a hawk in the mountains hiking along a cliff edge, there were dozens of them. This one guy comes by 30 ft out beyond the cliff, flips himself over up side down! I swear. Looks right at me, give a big cry, and continues to glide by just having a blast gliding around on the air currents. Looked like he was saying to me, “how do you like this bud?” It was cool chit.

    @Twypsi: Cooper’s hunt individually, are you sure you weren’t seeing turkey vultures? I have a Cooper’s hawk that occasionally flies to the other side of the window and people watches for awhile. Beautiful, big bird, I am in awe. And he’s smart enough to have instantly figured out that if I point, there’s a finch that hit the window over there that he needs to go get.

    Snakequake. Even though the chair tipped over, they WILL rebuild.
