Father Moses expressed our worst fears, for our beautiful cat has not been seen for several days. We are afraid that perhaps the cougars caught it and, if not, then the coyotes. It would probably be the former, since she has lived near the coyotes all her life and easily survived. Out of a litter of five kittens, one is still alive in Port Coquitlam, another in Edmonton, the third one disappeared in the second year of her life, while the fourth, who was half Manx, died last year. Now we are left with no animals of our own and it feels sad. On the other hand, the bears will be coming out of their dens soon and we can once again show visitors the paths along which the bears meander.
