Tom Parkington here. Still worrying about "Catzilla" ... durn thing is still on the prowl, looking for anything to eat.
We don't really see him in the daytime, but at night, we do. We have called the authorities repeatedly about this, but each time they come, it seems that "Catzilla" finds himself a new hiding place, and the animal authorities are once again left empty handed and shaking their heads in disbelief.
I do believe that we are dealing with an extremely intelligent creature -- otherwise, he would have been shot or put into captivity at some zoo somewhere long ago.
In the daytime, it's fine: my wife, Bunnie, and the kids are able to play outside and enjoy the warm summer temperatures, and I am able to get my yardwork completed, but every time it turns dusk, there can be yet another mountain lion sighting. We don't honestly know if it's "Catzilla" or an entirely different animal, but one thing IS certain: we are not going outside as long as he (or it) is on the prowl!
Forget about letting our dog, "Frisky", outside, excepting to do his business ... don't want him to become mountain lion food, y'know?? (At night, if he has to go to the restroom, we have him go on the papers we have set up in the corner of the kitchen, nearest the back door; then we dispose of it before it starts stinkin' up the house.)
I just wonder what is going to happen: if this cat is ever going to be found or disposed of. Until that day comes, we are being held hostage because there's no telling what this creature may be capable of doing!
