This is why I tend to be overprotective of my cats.
I followed both Abby and Gracie one morning and discovered these paw prints behind the "hanger" (detached garage). I sent Dan a picture via phone and he did a little research. We both think it may have been a skunk. Pepe Le Pew? Who knows! I only know the evidence of a critter made me nervous.
I never did see any wild critters hereabouts except roadrunners, gophers, and stray (or feral) cats. In fact, Abby made a roadrunner fly! It ran and flew over Dan's truck and continued running.
