    Big birds of prey seem to like the little family pets.
    Had an Eagle or a big Owl rip the hide right off the old Tom Cat back 50 yrs ago, we found him 3 days later in the back of the wood shed.
    After a reattachment of his hide and a 5 day stay at the vets all was well.
    The vet figured the only thing that saved the cat's life was his 21 pounds so the bird couldn't lift him off.
    Every time a large eagle would soar over he'd take the quickest route to the back door.

    While I enjoy reading about all the treasures, my main interest is digging up the history of my farm

    That was worse scrap, just a big old tabby that was Alpha. Lived until he was 16yrs old, slept with the king shep. on the steps or in the dog house when outside.

    Ah, maybe my kitty Tigger will be safe ... he's only a svelte 25 pounds, but looks a bit bigger.
