Subject: RE: BS: Coyote Problems?
Jack, the big-cat poop includes mountain lion poop, which a coyote probably recognizes. I'm pretty sure tiger poop gives off the same "great big predator" signals.
From observing my pet cats, I see that they have instincitve reactions which I cannot begin to understand. For example, there used to be a fire house near me whose engines sounded strangely like coyotes howling at the moon. My cat was terrified whenever she heard those sirens, but she had never been near a coyote in her life. How did she know?
My current cat was scared recently by a recording an owl. (We live in a big city.) Again, how did she know? Instinct, but how does it work?
Henry, you seem to be between a rock and a hard place. I know! Tell your housemate to pay for the big-cat poop and give her the responsibility of spreading it. I bet she goes for indoor cats in no time.
Four sounds like quite a few, though.
