So on Saturday night around 11:30pm I let my cat Lucifee in and headed up stairs to my boudoir-pardon the phrase, it just sounded saucier than bedroom- As I lay my head on my pillow I hear this screeching sound. It was a cross between an old woman screaming and metal being dragged on the pavement! I jumped up and went over to my window and... A COUGAR was looking up at me, he quickly bolted forward and moments later it's victim began crying! By the sound I am assuming it was a Bambi, it cried and cried. The old woman screech followed by bursts of Bambi crying lasted for 45 minutes! During this time I phoned the police- who transfered me to Conservation who told me they would be out in the morning! "The morning?" I said, I don't think you heard me or the deer correctly "there is a COUGAR in my front yard"!!. He then went on to tell me that it was very promising he went for the deer not the children, because it meant he wasn't starving! It is now Monday and Conservation has yet to come to my house to retrieve the carcass or do anything other than cheer lead the COUGAR! My mum phoned the newspaper this afternoon and miraculously the conservation officer will be coming to my house tonight. For the record I have respect and appreciation for wild animals however at this time in my life with 4 small prey living under my roof I am not that into cohabiting with them. I wish I could have gotten a picture of him, but as usual I always think of photos after the fact.
Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho!!!
