We have a beautiful black cat in the neighborhood. Neighbors moved out and left him about 2 years ago. He's a great hunter because he isn't skinny like a stray usually is. He's actually pretty hefty. He will be headed to the pound tomorrow because he has decided that my chickens are easy pickings. I haven't had any problems before but I lost a hen the other day and thought it was a hawk that had been around. However, today I saw him going after them again. He doesn't scare easily. I sent Spook to chase him off only for him to come back a few hours later. I hate having to catch him and put him down, but I keep telling myself it's better for him to go to sleep than to keep fighting for a meal. Tell me I'm doing the right thing!!
