      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. Horrible & Traumatic

    This post is not for the faint of heart. I have never posted on a forum in my life, but I have never been in this situation before and need help. About 3 years ago, we adopted a stray cat that we called Raime. Because she was a stray, she was very skittish and preferred being outside. We attempted to train her to come inside at night because we live in the woods. We were fairly successful until this summer when she refused to come inside at all. She wasn't the type of cat you could go out and pick up to bring inside. Anytime we tried getting close, she would run away. On Friday night, I had a horrible feeling and tried to get her to come inside. She again refused and ran away. At 3:30 am Saturday morning, my husband and I woke to her being attacked. My husband and I and our black lab went tearing after the coyote that grabbed her right off our front door. We failed in getting her back. The entire trauma of the sounds and our failed attempt to get her has left me paralyzed. I never thought a coyote would come right up to our house. The horrible thoughts of her death won't leave me and I feel so guilty about not being able to save her. At the same time, I am so angry with her. She was a stray! Wasn't she supposed to know that there are predators out there?! Wasn't she supposed to be smart enough to stay high off the ground?! Why did this have to end like this? Most of the time, I feel like throwing up. I have read some horrible stories on here about tragic sudden deaths, and I am hoping some of you can help me get through this. Thank you for the opportunity to share.
