Last night we heard a ruckus in the chicken pen. I went out to investigate and found a nasty coon. I don't have a gun right now so I couldn't kill it. Instead I marked my territory all around the pen. (Thank God the neighbors were asleep) Today I find my cat in the pen marking HIS territory. Poor coon he will have a nice mixture of smells to deal with tonight. BTW the cat has never even looked at the chickens as prey. He know they belong to me and he protects them by keeping everything out of the yard. P.S. chickens do not like to be marked by a cat. Bad coon, good kitty.
