Letter: Keep cats in at night lest coyotes catch them


Throughout the summer, I have had numerous sightings of coyotes – in Japanese Gulch, Big Gulch, and running along State Route 526 toward the grassy area of Paine Field.

Just about two weeks ago, I was startled by a coyote on the 44th Avenue walking trail. Since then, I've been vigilant about keeping our cats inside at all hours.

On Thursday, July 13, I lost my cat, Jack, to a coyote. Unfortunately, on that evening, Jack shot out of the house. We could not catch him nor find him that night. The next morning, I found his remains on the little hill across the street from our house.
