The more I see of your yard, the more curious I am about that coyote-proof enclosure you've built for them.

But I have to say, if I were a coyote, I'd leave those Asian, African hybrid felines alone. I have a feeling they could hold their own against Wile E..

@NJ - cage video coming soon. Also, we've had to keep Sheba physically separated from PJ and Polly; Sheba has a blood lust for them.  I think it's a feral thing; PJ has 3 legs and Polly's missing a tail, so Sheba feels a duty to cull the "infirmed."  Now PJ has her own suite and Polly with Mugsie live out of my office.

@Marie: thank you, and yes, they are.

First off, this would have been a perfect emotovid to send to the Fox News guy that said " Hey, we should let Carl Rove do commentary on election night. "

Also, your response to NJ makes me think of my suspicions about why at six years old, a dalmatian from down my street attacked me from out of nowhere and tried to kill me. He tore the left side of my face off and when I rolled over he chomped the back of my neck and when I rolled over again he laid open my gut by about 8 inches. Even as a kid I knew a lot about animal behavior and wondered if there was something wrong with me, maybe some sort of disease, that the doctors just hadn't found yet. I think I was right. I believe some humans still carry this instinct as well. In grade school there were 6 or 8 incidences where I met knew people and they instantly and obviously hated me. I mean, who doesn't like the straight A student who recommends

extra home-work ideas to the teachers? Am I right ?

I also wonder about that wild instinct to cull the afflicted. I remember seeing a documentary a few years ago by Ginger Kathrens, one of the PBS shows about "Cloud," a member of a herd of wild horses. There was a colt born to one of the mares and something was wrong with it. After several hours it still wouldn't stand up. The mother was very distressed. The lead stallion chased the mares away, then grabbed the young colt's mane in his teeth and shook it to death. It was savage and shocking but very quick. I've always wondered whether the intention was to cull the herd, or if it was an act of euthanasia.

@ Blanche: You promoted extra homework ideas to the teacher? It's amazing you lived beyond grade school, girl.
