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 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.

    Brian dear furiend, those are great things to be thankful for…. that is also an excellent profile photo. Thank you for hosting this blog hop.

    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

    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.

  6. Katie Isabella

    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 get in the house. She knew we could see her thru the big window. Thank you for showing us Brian! Loved these videos. ❤️

    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!

  8. Sandee

    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.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

    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.

  11. Kyna Bear

    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.

  12. Mary Kirkland

    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.

  15. lisa

    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.

  16. Mickeys Musings

    WOW! That was scary seeing that coyote in your yard!
    Thank goodness your Dad scared him away.Yay for Mum on the lookout 🙂
    Good to see thoise ferals can jump well.It just might save them!
    Purrs,Georgia and Julie

    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.

  18. William's Kith & Kin

    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!

  19. Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song

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

  20. Kitties Blue

    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.

    Oh Kittens Brian!!! That was pawfully close. We’re so glad your pawrents were on the job and scared that evil old coyote away. Stay safe. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

    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.
