A recent rash of cat disappearances in the area around Famosa Slough have caused much heartache for pet owners. Outdoor cats have vanished without a trace.
A talk with “Chet” — a gentleman who lives nearby and helps maintain Famosa Slough — brought to light the fact that a coyote lives somewhere within the wetland preserve. It has been glimpsed by some but remains elusive.
Chet noted that he has seen it early in the morning and that cat skeletons have been found. He insists that the coyote has every right to live there and forage for food among the well-fed cats and critters near by.
