My 6 month old kitty, Pumpkin, was killed and eaten by raccoons a few weeks ago. I am major bummed. He was such a good little friend.. I had seen a couple of raccoons in the neigborhood and didn't think much of it, until I was talking to some of my neighbors who had the same thing happen. One neighbor saw it happen right in front of her. Two large raccoons had killed her cat and were devouring the remains. I didn't know coons would eat cats. I thought they would just eat fruit and bugs, and get into the trash cans and stuff. I WAS WRONG!!! If you've seen coons in your neighborhood and have cats. BRING THEM IN AT NIGHT!!! I normally do this, but we were away on vacation, and my wife's cousin who was staying at our house forgot to bring the little fella in for the night, and when we got back, we only found a few remains... I bought a couple raccoon traps and caught 2 very large and nasty coons, we had them relocated, I really wanted to take them out in the ocean on my boat for a swim, I am so upset and angry... I know there's more out there roaming the neighborhood, but once they see a couple of their buddies get trapped, they probably wise up real fast... I'll keep setting my traps.
