Society of Feline Gardeners-Thursday in the House with Jonesie

::Meowwww::

So my furriends, I'm sure by now you've heard from Ginger.  We are in serious lockdown.  My garden sanctuary was invaded by the worst of introoders.  A coyote.

We had a disturbed Jack Russell Terror in the yard...and once we even had a vishus cute deer.  
What's a garden cat to do? 

I've been spending my time looking out the glass door.  Looking out windows.

Relying on my best woofie pal and sister Grete to do the snoopervising for me.

Grete takes her job seriously.  She is not pleased that I can't come and play with her in the yard.   Mom and dad are trying to figure out what to do so I can still enjoy my favorite place in the whole world.

Dad took out an old and diseased apple tree.  He is replacing it with a Honey Crisp apple tree that I approved of.  It breaks my heart that dad had to handle this alone without me there by his side.

Grete promises to keep her nose to the ground to make sure no more evil introoders trespass into MY garden.

Stay safe my furriends.

Ooo Honey crisp! Those are the best, crunchiest, sweetest apples! We might have to come invade your yard to snatch a few..

Whisppy said...

Oh my...how did the coyotes manage to get into your garden when you have all those fences up? Thank goodness your Daddy saw them before it saw all of you. We're glad you are all safe indoors.

The garden is not the same without you!

orbit said...

That looks like a fun yard, but I'll always prefer my inside-only status. I'm really spoiled!

Huffle Mawson said...

Tragic turn of events, Jonesie. I hope you get out in your garden soon.

Simba said...

It is just TERRUBUL that a coyote came in YOUR garden!!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

It wouldn't be the same at all, but maybe your parents could build an enclosed outdoor catio. Or think about a different type of fencing? How high can a coyote jump?

Very scary, though. We know coyotes have coyote families to feed...but we don't want them to feed on you!!!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We are sure Grete is doing a terrific job but we wishes you could go out and help. We hopes the humans can come up with a solution to the coyote problem soon. Maybe you need a Roadrunner, he seemed to be pretty good at getting rid of the Coyote.

Cat said...

Hopefully Grete can put her scent down in the garden and scare the coyote away. Poor Jonesie, it must be frustrating to stay inside but we want you to be safe!!!!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh my a coyote in your back yard?! That is kind of scary. Apples are very good. The Woman is hoping to get a couple of the columnar apples in pots for the front near the entry way. I hope so. I would love to check out the new fruit.

Terri said...

Did the coyote go over or under the fence? We are so sad you can't get out in the garden to snoopervise. That is terrible!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Aw, we's sorreez you can't go outside! Jonesie, I just now realized that YOU must be THE Jonesie!! Wow!

Still, better inside the house than inside the coyote's tummy!!

The Cat From Hell said...

Coyotes! Me thinks they would be scared of Grete! And me agrees, Honey Crisp apples is super.

We can understand that safety must be the first consideration, Jonesie! We're glad that Grete Woofie is there to guard and protect and hope you will be able to go out into the garden again soon.

Purrs,
The Chans (and Tommy!)

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Oh Jonesie! We certainly hope you get to go back outside soon. We will purr for a fitting solution for that to be so.

Maybe you will have to have a big catio made, complete with suspended walkways.

Brian said...

That is scary, but maybe your Dad and Grete will figure out something soon. Just be safe please!

meowmeowmans said...

That's very scary, Jonesie. We sure hope Grete and your parents can figure out a way to keep those coyotes out of your garden!

TK and Squashies said...

Is so very gud you gots Grete to heps you wif the introoder! Stay safe Jonesie.

The Island Cats said...

We'd rather have you safe inside, Jonesie. We hope your humans can figure something out, though.

Our mom loves Honey Crisp apples!

ABBY said...

Most importantly Jonesie we want you safe and your Mom and Dad want to figure out a way to keep the garden safe for you too. We are sure they will and very soon you will be back outside snoopervising just like normal.

I hope that mean coyote will not get any presents from Santy Paws.

Karen Jo said...

That's terrible. I can't ever go out because of my virii, but I sympathize. Mom thinks she found coyote tracks in our yard recently, too. I hope you find a way to keep the coyotes away so you can go out again.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Happy Christmas dear friends ~ and a joyful and healthy new year to you all. We love you guys so much. xx

Purrfect Haven said...
