This is why I was fretting about an owl having nabbed Chloe.

A lovely, big great horned owl sitting right on the electric pole in the yard at dusk while robins and grackles swooped around squawking in alarm.  While I think an owl would have to be motivated by serious need to tackle an adult cat instead of smaller prey, I'm very sure they could dispatch one with a bit of effort.  

We'd never hurt an owl but I'm really, really glad Chloe is back so I don't have to look at this beauty with suspicion.


  1. That is so very cool to snap a picture like that. Pretty stunning sky, too...a new color way perhaps?

  2. Here in southern Georgia, we warn Yankees not to leave their toy dogs outside, even if the weather isn't a zillion degrees (as it is right now). The local hawks love the pooches, and not in a pleasant way. Not to mention that we have water moccasins, cottonmouths, coral snakes, buzzards, and gators. Oh, and owls too.
