I am still stunned. We had kittens born the first of May. We have been keeping them and Mamma in an old chicken coop that we call our kitty house. The windows open ever so slightly at the top. Just enough for Mamma to come and go. She would come over to the house for a few hours during the day to visit. I check on the babies evry morning and night. They were doing great and getting almost big enough to let roam. We have had trouble in the past with stray tom cats killing kittens. We also had racoons take them. We thought these were safe. For some reason I did not go to visit this morning. I just went and found 3 of my 4 pretty babies dead. 1 had a bite wound to its head, 1 the same wound and its rib cage eaten a little. The last one was in pieces to awful for me to explain. The fourth was my favorite, there are no signs of him. Honestly I was afraid to move any more things in htere, I don't want to find him. The one was right by the door when walked in but I had to search to find the others. What could have done this? Its very hard for anything very big to get in there. They were good size by now. Would a tomcat do that at that age? None of the cat food was gone and the new bag was intact so I am assuming it wasn't a coon. Although I don't think one could have gotten in. Do I need to be afraid for my chickens? They are protected but now I wonder if we were just getting lucky until now. I can't believe what I saw, Im just sick and sad.
