I want to help 2 feral cats in my yard...especially in our very cold weather. The coyote popualtion here has increased to the point that they even come hunting in my yard in broad daylight. I am amazed these 2 cats have survived for several years. The recent subzero weather brought the cats out to sit in the sun against the house. I put some food out which they gobbled up, but the next day I noticed fresh coyote tracks all around the spot where they were feeding. I made sure to pick up the plate or any leftover food before sundown, but now I worry that I will interfere with the cats' success in surviving. I would love some advice from any of you very wise and experienced catsite.com folks as to whether I should leave well enough alone. Years ago I fed an injured raccoon who could barely walk and had settled against the house for protection. He was caught by the coyotes right there where I fed him in the middle of the night...very upsetting.
