    I was right. They're fisher cats. The barn for the school for kids with mental issues is just a few houses down and the noise is creepy. Like screaming children but not. I'm starting to wonder if the property on the other side of the river is being developed. Why else would they suddenly appear - and so close to people's homes too?

    What are fisher cats and do they look like regular cute cats? I have never seen one or heard one.

    Not so much when you see the chicken carcasses.

    I wanted to hear what they sounded like, so I searched the web. I found this. I don't know about you, but it gives me shivers. Had I heard that noise, I would have been freaked out, even if I knew what it was..
