I was sleeping, everything was locked up when my two dogs (Stella Black Golden-doodle Left in profile pic, Riley Shichon Right in pic) started barking. I ignored then and went beck to sleep. Eventually they would stop then start back up again. The fourth time they began barking I sat up in my half sleep, dazed state, and thought to myself, there has to be a reason they are barking. The thought Possum and Raccoon zoomed my brain awake and I (16) jumped from my loft bed to find them staring at the sliding glass door. There i saw a white with grayish-brown spotted cat sitting and stalking my 8 chicks (about 6 week barred rocks). I was amazed because a cat never crossed my mind as something i need to protect my chickens from. I live in an urban setting and thats definitely not my cat. So how did it get in my backyard? I opened the sliding glass door to reveal my vicious beasts. The cat quickly ran up my fence and tight roped it out of view. That was that and I praise good girls.
