Let the cat out. An hour later she's back with half her lower jaw peeled off, bite marks around her ribcage and one paw de-gloved. $850 later the vet is supposedly patching her up. Breaks my heart to see her torn up like that. I'm in a suburban neighborhood with no dogs. The vet said whatever got her was big enough to get its mouth around her whole body. We've been seeing coyotes in the field across the way, but they would have had to have ventured a couple hundred yards among the tight-knit houses to get up here. The cat doesn't stray very far. Is that usual coyote behavior? What can be done. We're inside the city limits, so I can't shoot em.
