Hello there everyone, thanks once again for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always so very thankful to each of you for joining us! As you know, each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today my Thankful Thursday isn’t a repeat, it’s more of a follow up of something I recently mentioned. Today I’m thankful for Chasing off evil. I mentioned that there had been lots of reports of coyotes in our neighborhood and those close to us. We’ve been fortunate that nothing was overly close, until this past Monday. We had a coyote infringe on our turf, in our backyard, just steps away from where the ferals eat. Here is the face of evil…

Fortunately, the Mom watches our security cameras like a hawk and when a motion alert goes off she’s right there on her phone checking it out. She saw the introoder, alerted the Dad, who took off immediately outside to chase the evil one from our midst. I’m thankful the peeps were on the case. This happened at 8:30 in the evening and we didn’t see any our feral family until the next morning when they all showed up from breakfast.

On another note, our sweet friend Katie Isabella asked if the ferals could leap up to the deck if something was after them. Here ya go Katie, this will answer your question…

I’m very thankful that our feral family is okay, at least so far and I’m thankful that the Mom is watchful and the Dad is on the case. When it comes to the Dad the coyotes don’t know who they’re messing with.

So, what are you thankful for today??? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Brian, your post froze me in terror. I am so glad the ferals are safe thanks to your mum and dad. Thanks Terry and family.

That was a very scary and hungry looking coyote. You are so lucky to have such caring humans.

That is so scary! But the ferals were smart to stay hidden the way they did. When my human had a cat a long time ago that insisted on being an indoor-outdoor cat, she did the same thing. Made my human crazy with worry, but she knew what she was doing. She lived to be nearly 16 and died of cancer, not by a predator.

you have a super brave dad and we love that your mama has always an eye on your kingdom so no intruder has a chance to do bad things.

Yikes…….so glad your Mom and Dad are making sure those coyotes keep their distance. Scary. We have some rather evil foxes around here. Who do these INTROOOOODERS think they’re messing with right?? Right!

Hugs, Teddy

Great how they can jump on up and are safe. Those coyotes can be nasty little buggers, chasing them away is the way to be indeed.

Pam Greer

Wow, that is so scary!! So glad they keep a watchful eye on the camera!

We are so glad you all have cameras and saw that coyote and were able to chase it away. Yay for Dad. And great pictures. You all have a fabulous day.

My mom loves all animals including the coyotes and she feels bad for them because humans have taken their natural space away driving them into neighborhoods, BUT she doesn’t want to see them walking down our street during the day, or slinking around the neighborhood in the dark. They are frightening even though we are a bit bigger, she doesn’t trust they wouldn’t try to go after us.

WOW! I have never seen a coyote up close like that though they are swarming everywhere…so far we haven’t seen or heard one. How awful! SO glad your mom watches the camera’s like a hawk and the coyotes get treated like a hawk was swooping down! And seeing that feral leaping up to the deck with hardly gathering himself up to do it, shows he is very young and agile. Our Robin, back in the day when we had her and she was indoor-outdoor, always leapt up on the deck with her gifts she caught for us, and just to… Read more »

That is so scary! That is what all feral caretakers fear – I’m so glad your ferals are able to hide and/or get up on the deck. Whew! Your Mom and Dad are on top of things as usual, so I think all will be well, Whew again!

That is the face of evil alright. I know the dad will make sure there is no harm. We have to take care of our babies.

Brian,I am thankful for a host of things,one that I did not say in my posting is the fact that I am a susicide survivor,I did say other things that I am thankful for.

Nice jump, is that one of your ferals? Coyotes are more and more active in this neck of the woods too and I’m always afraid they’ll go after Little Rat now that his big bro is gone. Love the music, I hear the theme from Jurassic Park when I see coyotes because they remind me of velociraptors.
Today I’m thankful for something I can’t have too often and probably shouldn’t have at all, pizza.

Brian, your feral kitties appear to know how to take care of themselves, but I’d be freaking out if I saw a coyote in the backyard!

We don’t have coyotes here, we only have foxes : coyotes are bigger, and look more scary ! We’re glad for the ferals that your humans watch out for them. Purrs

I am really glad that they can get on the deck. Great video! You might mention to your dad that a spray called “Halt” might be a good extra protection. In my experience, the coyotes don’t always run away from me. So, when they’re active, I carry “Halt” (a citronella-based spray) just in case I need to protect myself.

Oh no, I hope the coyotes stay away from your feral family. I am so thankful your Mom and Dad are so careful.

I’ve seen people in Las Vegas posting a lot of coyote pictures and video too. The animal control are telling people in these areas to keep their dogs indoors and not let them hang out in the back yard. I’m glad that mom and dad were watching your cameras.

Nothing scarier than coyotes and fox creeping around our yards in the night, especially when our feral furends are nearby. Years ago our mom watched with horror as a red fox chased her Kentucky rescue, Nicholas, from the front yard to the back. Nick slipped inside the porch through the cat door, looking exhilarated by the chase, but Mom needed a drink once she as assured he was okay.

That was scary to see the coyote so close! I am glad your mum and dad are so vigilant.

So glad to see that you are protecting the kitties from evil (no Wiley Coyete around the cats!)
Have a wonderful weekend Brian and thanks for hosting ! 🙂

That would have been a very scary experience. We hear coyotes outside late at night, but they are in the distance (for now). Of greater concern for small animals in our area are the two owls, the hawk and the fox that live in and around the neighborhood. Happy your mom and dad have a watchful eye….and your feral are okay.

That coyote doesn’t stand a chance with your Mom and Dad on the job! We saw a bear in our driveway a few nights ago. Everyone is on high alert around here now.

We’re glad you, your mom and dad were on the case, Brian. We hope your feral family continues to be safe. Coyotes are a problem here, and our Aunt L lost a cat to a coyote in California. We’ve never seen one and we’re thankful for that!

We are glad the ferals are alright. They have angels watching over them.

Wow, that is so scary. Is there anything you can get for the yard that will scare those bad coyotes away. We are really thankful all the ferals returned in the morning. We are thankful that our mom and dad got to have a night out, and Sawyer was okay while they were gone.

Whoa! How scary. My sweetie Buzz Lucas was mauled by a coyote and almost died from his injuries. Hooray for your mom and dad being on high alert.

Well, I don’t think coyotes are evil, but I’m relieved that your humans were there to chase them off to keep you all safe. Mom says on occasion she would hear coyotes howl from a distant field late at night on occasion, but that was before all the new house were built on that field. I think coyotes are just trying to find where they belong in the world of humans. Chin nuzzles.
