Wildlife

I'm pretty sure there was a coyote in my yard last night. I went out on the front steps around midnight and thought at first it was a really big fox, but now I think it was a smallish coyote. It was licking the pathway in front of my neighbor's house (she has a little girl, so there was probably some kind of spilled deliciousness on the ground) and it wasn't very afraid of me, even after I made a big banging noise.

I think I'm going to make sure to keep the kitty in at night from now on.

coyote?! I thought you lived in town? It's rare to see one in Bar Harbor, which hardly counts as a town like Portland and has lots of woods and wild places around it, so I can only think he was lost, confused or sick. Probably wise to keep the kitty indoors, particularly at night.
