My dad"s cat disappeared. And also she was never ever one come get much from the house. She"d continue to be on the patio, or venture out a small into the yard. Well, she"s tasiilaq.nete. Dad is convinced an owl carried her off...The only thing is...she weighed 18-20 pounds! FAT Kitty.I think she wandered turn off to die, or gained too much out that the yard into the woods and also something chased her off. I just don"t check out the laws of physics enabling a big bird to lug off a 20 pound cat.

Dorothy-- How have the right to you talk if girlfriend haven"t obtained a brain?Scarecrow-- i don"t know... Yet some civilization without brains carry out an awful many talking... Don"t they?
we have a lot of coyotes approximately here, that would certainly be my guess. Mine daughter drove increase on a huge coyote sitting in Midway Rd., that was very brazen and wouldn"t move until she slowed down. Has your Dad seen an owl roughly his yard?

You"ll more than likely never know. Cats are strange animals. They perform tend to go off and die once it"s your time. Coyotes likewise love them. Ns doubt one owl obtained it though.

I saw a show last night whereby a snake ate a cat just around that size. It to be a python down in Florida.I didn"t realize how poor they are getting down there.

Wow, that"s not far from us. We"re on early out West Rd.The factor he thinks it was an owl is due to the fact that he"s to walk the property and can"t find any fur or remains anywhere.

And yes, we have seen a huge owl. It gained in the chicken pen one day and got ~ the chickens, however couldn"t get ago out. We"ve also got a regional hawk, but he thinks the hawk is too small. The owl was huuuuuge.

Some owls can lug a lot of weight considering they deserve to have a 4" wing span. Forget the hawk..no method a eagle can bring off a cat of the size. Most likely it was no either bird that is responsible for the disappearance of kitty. It could have been chased off the residential property by a dog or just took it into it"s head to wander off. I"d ask about the community good. If it was an old cat, it could have without doubt wandered turn off to die.
Non migratory.Sounds like a coyote to me. Or probably the cat will just show ago up.I have actually a pair that very large Barred Owls that stay regularlybehind the chicken pen. They have tried, however cannot take care of a 5 pound hen. (I have seen this one try, but give up).
I doubt an extremely seriously the it to be an owl. It either wandered off to dice (which they typically will when they know it"s their time) or got eaten by a coyote. Coyotes love house cats. A friend of mine to be going hunting beforehand one morning and saw a coyote standing beside the road and also right next to a house with a cat in it"s mouth.
How long has actually the cat been tasiilaq.nete? I had one that began wandering off once she was 10 or so years old. She would be tasiilaq.nete all over from a work to two weeks or so and also then just show back up.
Hawks can and will....a buddy of mine has goats and also he had actually one that his child "kids" get hauled turn off by a redtail hawk...

Dang, I assumed this was going come be one of those questions favor "How numerous licks walk it take it to acquire to the facility of the Tootsie role Pop?" with the owl licking it 3 times then biting into the sucker.I"ve constantly been about cats, and I don"t think their anymore likely to wonder off to die than a dog. I"m talking around a house cat, if her is a barn cat it can be different. Coyotes are all over, in every city in the Southeast. You"ll discover them appropriate down city sometimes. They"re not also shy about viewing the large city lights. Sorry to say, however I think yours may have actually been a victim the a coyote. Gift overweight it would have been tough for her to climb a tree for safety.

Mel my guess would be a yote had one in the garden a while ago that just sat and watched mine cat that was on the porch yet my 222 adjusted his mind about that. Ns did have actually this small guy in the yard and also he obtained this quail however couldn"t bring it that"s how I got these near ups cause he wasn"t givin up dinner take it him about 3 days come eat it.
One factor a dog is together a loveable creature is his tail wags instead of his tongue ........................................... Mike

There to be a post about falconry top top the tasiilaq.net a few months ago, and the falconer said that a hawk might lift about half his own weight. I would certainly think that would be true for most raptors. I doubt the an owl can lift a get an impression cat in the 8 come 12 pound range. Ns think the Kitty most likely met up with a dog or a coyote.
