130 cats in Celia Hammond cat sanctuary down south in Brede, have been terrorized by an out of control pack of foxhounds , allegedy illegally hunting . 60 terrified animals fled and went missing ,some eventually made their way back, 10 elderly and frail cats are still missing presumed dead. Bloody hunts.
The foxes around here are breeding well over the last few years, their howling is an eerie sound in the dark and quiet of night. No doubt the rats are doing the same having seen a few of them too in recent months. Plenty of mice too, despite a large number of local pussycats (who are chased by the foxes).
Don't agree with hunting foxes, but if hunts must ride over hill and dale an aniseed scent trail should suffice.
There have been instances of family pets being savaged in the course of some of these hunts, apologies from these cretins won't bring back a much loved family pet, I cant believe the arrogance of some of these so called huntsmen and women when confronted.
Hey, Casper, family pets are savaged in the middle of Wirral by foxes that are now urbanised.
Really? I've seen foxes with cats and dogs, if anything kicks off the fox does a runner. Rabbits are obviously at risk but you would hope the owners have them well secured. Most birds are vulnerable but they should be protected too as its not only foxes that will have them.
On the other hand, fox cubs are vulnerable to cats and this is the one occasion when the fox will attack a cat, in order to protect its young.

Foxes den in my garden and cubs to go with it. Has been for the last 7 yrs or more. Next doors cats attacked One tried to get into my house (which I've mentioned before) another sat at the side of my daughter , About 3ft away one night. She didn't know it was there, and only when she sensed something and shone her phone in the direction did she know. Not that it was likely to eat her, but they are more and more becoming brazen . My friends cats were chased by a fox , over in Liverpool one night. Straight down the centre of her cul de sac and over her garden wall. Another friend had one in his clapped out mini, which was parked up behind his house. It had set up home in there. Wallasey. Another played in my garden last year in the middle of the day. They're everywhere as Moon Star says and breeding well. (I'm sure I've posted this before).

I know granny it's a cat and dog thing, nature, not the same as being savaged by a pack of hounds though, imagine sitting in your garden playing with the grandkids and a pack of hounds run through the fence and savage your pets, cat, dog, rabbit not good.
On a similar note we have had a squirrel raiding the birdhouse, looked out of the window the other day to see it being devoured by a kestrel on the embankment, poor old cyril miss his antics.
