Pet Cats Mysteriously Vanish in Australia

 

Tasmania 2020

RSPCA Tasmania said the cats were simply walking away and not coming back and, in Dover, none of the bodies were even found.

"What is happening to these cats has yet to be established, but police are aware of the situation," Jen Davis, CEO of RSPCA Tasmania said. RSPCA Tasmania is confident the missing cats are a criminal matter.

Ms Davis said differing opinions about cats - whether they are friend or foe - can lead to disagreements in the community and cause individuals to "take matters into their own hands".

Tasmania Police are aware of the reports but said, "there is no evidence to suggest any connection between the reports - or any criminal behaviour involved".

"Cat owners are advised to contact their local council, or animal welfare organisations, if they have concerns."

George Town local council was aware of missing cats being reported but said they were limited in how they could respond.

Sue Maddigan has had two of her beloved fur babies go missing in George Town over the last two years. Ms Maddigan said that the curse of the missing cats had hit the town last year, as well as this year, and the gender of the cats may play a role in their disappearance.

"Fourteen female cats have gone missing this year, but it was 14 male cats last year. It has to be more than an almighty coincidence," Ms Maddigan said.

While Tasmania police were not prepared to link the disappearances to crime, Ms Maddigan was confident a member of the community was the cat burglar.

"It seems to be, the last two years, people are just taking cats," Ms Maddigan said.

She lost Mack, her five-year-old Maine Coon, in 2019 and shortly after filling the hole he left behind with her new cat, Splodgie, that one was gone too. Mack was a huge, big ginger boy with beautiful gold eyes. I cried for days after losing Mack. And Splodgie was a dear little pet that was loved."

"It's like taking a child ... It's your fur baby," Ms Maddigan said.

Sunshine Coast QLD 2017
At least 30 cats have disappeared from one Sunshine Coast suburb as fears mount a cat hater could be stealing the beloved pets and killing them. The cats were registered, micro-chipped and desexed and have vanished without a trace from the Peregian Springs and Peregian Breeze estates.

Some of the cats had been fitted with GPS trackers which have been switched off, adding to the concern a human was responsible.

A Sunshine Coast Lost Pet Coordinator spokeswoman said police and the Sunshine Coast Council had been informed. But with little help available, the distraught pet owners have formed their own Facebook page, missing cats Peregian Springs and Peregian Breeze, to share information.
Residents have also distributed 3,000 flyers to homes, alerting other cat owners of the potential risk.

Donna Powell's much-loved "family member" Leo went missing "46 days ago" when he was allowed outside for a brief period in the afternoon. Ms Powell's distraught seven-year-old son, Ceri, who has Asperger's has been waking up crying for his beloved friend. "We are all distraught," Ms Powell said.

The lost pet coordinator said there had been "no sightings of the cats, no bodies and none of the pounds had any information. Wild animals had been ruled out as a cause because of the lack of trace of any remains and the cats disappeared from inside busy, residential neighbourhoods.

We lived in the springs for five years and lost two fur babies and our current little cat went missing for three days but returned home. I am still dubious that he wandered but may have been captured as ever since returning he has a phobia of black shoes. He is savvy so maybe one of the lucky ones. I do believe something sinister is going on as there are no remains or surrenders to pounds or councils...makes me sick to think what may be happening to these babies and what comes next if anyone has such a hate inside them that they could possibly do this to a living thing. We have moved since to our own three acres so he is now the king of his domain still very cautious of everything... especially black shoes of any kind.

Holy Scriptures Meant to be taken Symbolically

FreakSense TV
 As someone who has attended church since before I could walk, in a family comprised entirely of devout Christians, and having read the Bible cover to cover it has become increasingly clear to me that these holy scriptures were meant to be taken symbolically, not literally or historically. Things like talking snakes and bushes, virgins giving birth, eating the body of Christ, staffs turning into serpents, and many other biblical “miracles” are all actually ancient spiritual symbolism's, found in many cultures/traditions around the world, thousands of years older than the Bible, referring to psychological phenomena, not historical events. Of course snakes and bushes cannot talk, of course virgins cannot give birth, Christ isn’t a cannibal, wooden staffs cannot turn into living serpents, water cannot magically turn into wine, breads/fish cannot magically manifest from the ether, and humans cannot survive for days inside whale’s bellies.
 2 Corinthians 3:6 clearly says the scriptures should NOT be read literally. Matthew 13:34 says Jesus never spoke unless it was in parables. He said people who took the word literally were like those who looked but could not see! Modern fundamentalist Christians who read the Bible literally with their over-active left-brains are missing the whole point. The reason Jesus cast nets to the right side, sits on the right side of God, and builds the door to the temple on the right side, is because he is leading us out of our lower left brains and into our holistic, symbolic, higher brain on the right.

Psychic Impressions 
In listening to this MUCH of this resonated as true. I have always felt there was a truth within the Bible, but the stories (in taking them from a more literal approach) felt very wrong. I couldn't quite understand why parts of it felt to be very enlightening and create a sense of peace, while at the same time rejecting it. After watching the video, I gained such a clarity that I had to share it with you. This is more of a confirming type of post rather than a read, but I hope you enjoy.

When trying to understand the base language of the Bible, I do resonate with it being written in ways we can remember. It tells a truth, but in a way that it paints a visual story to reinforce the image. To further support this, the Bible itself within Proverbs discusses a "Perceived Understanding." We talk in allegories all the time. Even Matthew 13:34 discusses how Jesus spoke in parables. We uses phrases in language all the time and say things such as: shooting the bull, if looks could kill and spilling the beans, just to name a few. I see the Bible and it's lessons working the same way and that is why across various religions, concepts are very similar. 

Allegories and the concept of parables are discussed several times in the story of Abraham. 2 Corinthians further describes that the letter kills (or taken literally causes harm) and the spirit gives life. The versus are meant to teach great knowledge, and more importantly how to access and speak to your inner God directly.

It is suspected that many people in the Bible didn't exist. I have always seen that they did, but I didn't connect to the extreme miracles like parting the red sea, or finding two of EVERY animal to put on an ark. I do see a great flood, and I see the parting of the red see as a symbol for something else. A great point was given within the video as the existence and magnitude of their abilities have been questioned. How is it possible to prove Jesus or Moses existed as it is near impossible to prove a non existent being? It would be like saying "prove a flamingo-pelican doesn't exist" when the real challenge should be to prove it does indeed exist (people go about the proving in the wrong direction). 

The Bible is a story of dark and light or the (D)evil versus Go(o)d. Getting right with God or finding the Kingdom to God is accessed via the right side of the brain. The Bible refers to getting within (going inside) to find God and the mystery of the kingdom. The reference of going "right" and "within" is repeated several times. You go without (to the external) to hide from God, but go inside to find him. The carnal/ego is the left and Christ is on the right. Luke 17:21 God is within you.

The Bible further goes into meditation and the importance of it to find God. In Matthew 6:22 if your eye be single your body will fill you with light. The third eye or the pineal is the gateway to finding God. Going to the mountain or higher place in all religions refer to the higher part of consciousness. God lives in a temple not built with human hands (within the temples of your head). The temple can only be built in silence.

References to regarding the chakras  is also discussed. You have to climb the chakras via the kundalini energy and the climbing leads to the opening to the right side of the brain, and finally the enlightenment in the pineal. The pineal is the seed of the soul. Even the Vatican has the pine cone symbology relating to the pineal. Jacob also describes meeting God in a place called Piniel. Revelation 5:1 states "and I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside sealed with seven seals." This refers to gaining knowledge from within and it was gained by traveling the backside and passing through the seven chakras. 

This rising kundalini energy (which originates in the root chakra at the base of the spine) is many times illustrated as the golden serpent climbing the spine. The kundalini is also referred to as the coiled one in many religions as that is the motion it makes as it travels upwards. This can also be represented as Jacob's Ladder or in the description of King Solomon Temple and the winding staircase. Not only does this spiral motion lead you to the Kingdom of God, but the shape is also the basis of life (half of the double helix of DNA). 

I feel this just taps into the knowledge that we have always had in our hands. True enlightenment (inward lighting of the mind) comes from within. We have the key, we just need to unlock it.

Mothman Beast


There's a report from a woman who said she'd seen a seven-foot-tall, red-eyed creature after leaving work at the United States Postal Service (USPS) sorting facility in Chicago's O'Hare International Airport at around 11 pm on 24th September 2020.
I had just left work at the USPS Sorting Facility at O’Hare Airport at about 11:00 pm on Thursday the 24th of September and was walking out to my car when I saw something standing at the far end of the parking lot where I usually park . At first I thought it was a very tall person with a long coat. As I got closer to my car, I unlocked my car, which caused my headlights to come on. My headlights hit the person standing about 20 to 25 feet from my car causing it to turn and look right at me. I saw that this was not some person but some red-eyed creature, and what appeared to be a coat were actually wings which it spread out as it turned to look at me. At first I thought it was some kind of very, very large bird, but I’ve never seen any bird that stood almost seven feet tall. I’m 5’4" and this thing looked taller than me by at least two feet. This thing then started making some type of chirping sound, almost a half chirp and half click like someone was clicking their tongue but much much faster. It then made some type of screeching sound and took off running toward me, it got to within 10 feet of me and took off into the air and flew above me. I was screaming hysterically as I crouched down behind cars open door and I dived into my car head first. I was in a near panic as I tried to start the car, close and lock the doors and turn on my interior lights. I started my car and took off out of the parking lot and flew down the road till I hit the main road. I got home and told my husband who also works at the same facility and he was the one who told me about the sightings of this thing. I was scared shitless and hope I never see this thing again. This thing is roaming around the area, scaring people half to death. I hope the airport people decide to do something about this thing someday. 
 Navarette was able to meet with the witness to discuss her sighting, although she was at first reluctant to discuss the issues after the initial report.
 
According to Navarette, "The witness is a 17-year veteran of the USPS and has worked at the O’Hare sorting facility for the last 15 years. She advised that on the night in question, she was walking toward her car after her shift had ended and was checking her text messages on her phone as she made the familiar walk to her vehicle. I asked her if there were other people around, to which she answered no, as most of the other employees leave right at shift change and she usually sticks around to take care of the transition." 
 
"As the witness walked to the car, she noticed what looked like a very tall man at the very far end of the parking lot that she reasonably thought was one of her fellow co-workers," he continued. "As she walked toward the car, she deactivated the car alarm which automatically turned on the car headlights. The headlights illuminated the person at the other end of the parking lot and it turned toward her revealing a pair of bright red eyes and it spread what looked like a giant pair of wings. When asked how big the wings were, she could not give me a definitive answer but guesstimated that they must have been between 10 to 12 feet across. The being then began making a series of clicking noises which she described as a cross between a click and a chirping sound. The being then let out a loud metallic screech that she described to [me as sounding] like the brakes on a large truck or train."

Then, said Navarette, 

The witness described how it began running toward her in these very long strides, at which point it took off into the air. When I asked her to describe the being and how it looked or flew, she said she did not look up at it as she was too busy flinging the car door open and diving into her car while screaming. The witness stated that she started her car and turned on the interior lights all while trying to keep her wits about her. When I asked her if she saw which way the creature flew away, she advised that she,
Didn’t care where it flew off to and she was not gonna stick around to find out.
 The witness advised that she left the area in a hurry and did not slow down till she had left the area and had joined the main road and traffic.
 
The sound described by the witness is similar to that reported by witnesses in Rockford, near Hedgewisch Park and on the southern end of Northerly Island in Chicago, and in another encounter near O’Hare. The witnesses in those incidents said they heard a sound like screeching brakes during or prior to their sightings.
 
O’Hare International Airport has been the epicenter of recent winged humanoid sightings in the Lake Michigan Mothman investigation, with at least 10 sightings coming from the airport itself since August of 2019, and many more reported in the surrounding communities. 
 
This report constitutes the latest news in a string of ‘Mothman’ sightings from within a few hundred mile radius surrounding Lake Michigan, including every state bordering the great lake. These sightings ostensibly began in the spring of 2017, but more historical accounts are being reported as more people become aware of the phenomenon. They generally take place in the evening or at night, often in or near a park or natural area, and around water. Witnesses consistently describe a large, gray or black, bat or bird-like creature—although in a small number of cases the creature was described as insect-like—sometimes with glowing or reflective red, yellow, green, or orange eyes, and humanoid features such as arms and legs are often reported. Some witnesses have reported feeling intense fear and an aura of evil emanating from the creature they encountered. Many of the sightings are also of something seen only briefly or are described only as a flying creature with few details, which leaves open the possibility that a misidentified large bird—such as a heron or crane—or some type of anomalous avian species could explain some, although certainly not all, of the encounters. A number of associated high strangeness incidents have also occurred alongside the creature sightings; including reports of UFOs, other anomalous flying creatures and mysterious humanoids, parapsychological phenomena, and bizarre events experienced by those investigating the sightings. 

 Psychic Insight

When I focus on this story (I did read about her sighting) I immediately get this was a Mothman. It was brought here through some kind of dark ritual. Mothmen usually come here through portals and they are lower energetic beings. They typically leave the same way they came because their vibration does not jive with the vibrations here in the 3D. 

In this scenario I get that this Mothman was brought here through some kind of sinister ritualistic dark magik behavior. It feels forced versus accidental, and the forced nature has this beast angry because it wants to leave. It is uncomfortable here, but because it was manifested, it feels somewhat trapped (like a spirit does when it wants to move on but cannot seem to be released). 

When I try to figure out what it is doing, or why it is being held here, I see that it is in some way a mascot for a darker occult group. Somehow this group (that hides behind black robes with red paint on their face) calls upon it when holding their rituals and it makes them feel powerful. 

Somehow or someway if enough people can get together and help to energetically escort this thing out of here to where it is better served, not only would it be happier, it would be in the greater good of all.

Old Mother Shipton's Prophecies

Known famously to us as Mother Shipton but many believed her real name was Ursula Sontheil in 1488. Very little is known about Ursula’s parents but local legend says she was born during a violent thunderstorm in a cave on the banks of the River Nidd in Knaresborough in the UK. Her mother, Agatha, was just fifteen years old when she gave birth, and despite being dragged before the local magistrate, she would not reveal who the father was.Agatha raised Ursula by herself in a cave on her own for two years.

It’s said that, Abbott of Beverley took pity on them and a local family took Ursula in. Agatha was taken to a nunnery far away, where she died some years later and she never saw her daughter again.

Ursula appeared different from most of the other children growing up in Knaresborough at the time. It was said that her nose was large and crooked, her back bent and her legs twisted and because of her appearance, she was often tensed.Over the years, after much abuse from the locals, Ursula learnt that the best company to surround herself with was nature and just herself. She spent most of her days around the cave where she was born and studied the forest, the flowers and herbs and made remedies and potions with them.

When she was 24, it is said she met a man by the name of Tobias Shipton. He was a carpenter from the city of York. After only a few years of being together, Tobias died but Ursula always kept his second name. The mother nickname came as Ursula got older.Ursula lived a very long life and died in 1553, aged 73 years.

Her predictions.
Mother Shipton’s prophecies, didn’t appear documented anywhere until 1641, 80 years after her reported death.

It was said she predicted the great fire of London, the plague and the end of the world!It was a common occurrence for those in politics to use prophecies to predict future events and its said Old Mother Shipton ability was used to predict such things especially amoung uprisers against Henry VII.

Many of her written predictions were confirmed as forgeries, created to sell greater numbers of chapbooks and almanacs. Her 1684 “biographer” spun spooky details of her birth and existence; the 1881 end-of-the-world prophecy was debunked when the Victorian editor Charles Hindley publicly confessed to concocting the verses himself.

However, there is some evidence to back up the legend in the 1500s written by Henry VII. He speaks of a lady nicknamed ‘The York Witch’.Henry VIII, who wanted action taken against the rebels, dictated the following letter to Norfolk in response:

“We approve of your proceedings in the displaying of our banner, which being now spread, till it is closed again the course of our laws must give place to martial law; and before you close it up again, you must cause such dreadful execution upon a good number of inhabitants, hanging them on trees, quartering them, and setting their heads and quarters in every town, as shall be a fearful warning, whereby shall ensue the preservation of a great multitude… You shall send up to us the traitors Bigod, the friar of Knareborough, Leche, if he may be taken, the vicar of Penrith and Towneley, late chancellor to the bishop of Carlise, who has been a great promoter of these rebellions, the witch of York and one Dr. Pykering, a canon. You are to see to the lands and goods of such as shall now be attainted, that we may have them in safety, to be given, if we be so disposed, to those who have truly served us…”

Was Henry VII, referring to some women who acted outline as a witch or was he making reference to Old Mother Shipton?

Mother Shipton’s Full Prophecies 
Mother Shipton was reputedly born Ursula Sontheil in1488 in Norfolk, England, and was burned to death in 1561, after being accused of being a “witch” (a woman who performs evil religious practices). 

Her mother died when she was born, and a cave where she was born, became her home for much of her life, and is known today as “Mother Shipton’s Cave.” 

Mother Shipton exhibited prophetic and psychic abilities from an early age, and when she was 24 years old, she married a Mr. Toby Shipton, and eventually became known as “Mother Shipton.” Her prophecies were written in the form of verse (poetry), and came true within her own lifetime and in the centuries that followed. 

Whilst all prophecies are open to interpretation, Mother Shipton’s verses are easy to understand, and seem to have prophetic indications for our times, in view of recent world events. 

In approximately 1970 an Australian lady copied the verses and smuggled them out of the Mitchell Library in Sydney Australia; – (now the State Library of the State of New South Wales in Australia.) The originals were kept in a locked room, along with many other volumes of prophetic writings, which the government deemed, (considered) as unsuitable for the general public to read.

3. This is then held year by year Till an iron monster trembling fear (paper shredder or garbage compactor) Eats parchment, words and quill (pen) and ink And mankind is given time to think.

Mysterious Animal Deaths Spirit of Tasmania

 


Many years of controversial animal deaths on board the ship Spirit of Tasmania has culminated in the calls for an investigation.

WARNING - Distressing information.


Missing Dog 2021

Last night I was on the spirit of Tasmania coming from Tasmania. I had put my dog in a kennel and checked it twice to make sure that the door was shut. I was woken up at midnight to one of the security guards telling me that she had escaped and that had been trying to get her but had no luck. They would only let me look for an hour and I waited in the bar as they kept looking. They couldn’t find her, they didn’t raise any alarms when they were trying to get people to disembark or check their cars as they seem to think that she might of jumped in the Utes or trailers. I was there up until midday refusing to leave as they said she just vanished they check their limited cameras that they had on the dock/boat they don’t have cameras facing the kennels. I’m hoping someone has found her and that she is in the pound but I won’t know until tomorrow. We were moving from Tasmania to tweed heads and she is my best friend and I just want her back. Not knowing if she’s Dead or alive is killing me. Please help


The woman desperately searching for her pet dog after it escaped from a kennel while travelling to Melbourne on the Spirit of Tasmania says the unknown is destroying her.

"Not knowing if she's dead or alive is killing me. Please help," she said in an emotional Facebook post.
Holly Alexander checked on Ester, her Doberman and Rottweiler cross, twice to make sure the kennel door was shut while travelling on the ship. Ms Alexander was woken by security guards telling her Ester had ran off.
"I was woken up at midnight to one of the security guards telling me that she had escaped and that had been trying to get her but had no luck," her Facebook post reads.They would only let me look for an hour and I waited in the bar as they kept looking. They couldn't find her, they didn't raise any alarms when they were trying to get people to disembark or check their cars as they seemed to think that she might have jumped in the utes or trailers.

Death of Dog 2019

A man who says his dog died during an overnight trip on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry is calling for an overhaul of the conditions animals are held in during the 12-hour crossing of Bass Strait. But he claims the 93-kilogram South African mastiff died during the 12-hour journey.South Australian Marcus Lehmann took his best mate Mook on the Spirit of Tasmania as part of a permanent move to the state.
Pets are required to travel in the ferry's kennels and owners are not allowed to access the kennels during sailing. Mr Lehmann said he was told that staff noted the 14-month-old dog was struggling earlier in the night. Mr Lehmann said he was informed of the dog's death when the ferry docked in Devonport the next morning.
"At 8:30pm it was noted [by crew] he was struggling, and I was not notified and at 11:00pm he was deceased," he said. I think he suffocated, he had skin off his nose, off his head, off his feet, he tried really hard to save himself. It was horrific. They wrapped him in the sheet, threw him in the back [of Mr Lehmann's vehicle], said sorry, and let me go. This is Australia, this is Tasmania with my dead dog."
Mr Lehmann said conditions needed to change for animal welfare during the 12-hour Bass Strait crossing. They need to have been in an air-conditioned area, and they need to have somebody watching them 24/7. I would guess they're not allowed to have staff down there for any length of time because it kills [people], and then they go and put your bloody pets down there.

Death of Ponies 2018

The owner of six polo ponies that allegedly died during a Bass Strait crossing on the TT-Line's Spirit of Tasmania said he had seen the autopsy report and blamed the ferry service for their deaths. Australian agribusiness multi-millionaire Johnny Kahlbetzer owned six of the 13 horses that died in January while, it is alleged, travelling from Devonport to Melbourne. Mr Kahlbetzer said he and the owner of the other dead ponies, former Australian polo team captain Andrew Williams, arranged for autopsies to be done.

The pair, along with Mr Williams' wife Rebecca, are suing TT-Line and logistics company QUBE for negligence over the horses' deaths, alleging the companies failed to provide a safe environment, adequate checks and air flow. Mr Kahlbetzer said he and Mr Williams commissioned the autopsy and said the horses suffocated.

"We delivered the horses to the vets, who did that autopsy, etc — that's how I've seen it," he said. It's all in technical terms, and part of our legal case, but basically they died of lack of oxygen."

The Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries (DPIPWE) has repeatedly refused to release the autopsy report, saying it was part of their ongoing investigation. The ponies, valued at almost $650,000, died in the horse float driven by Mr Williams.
"It's irrelevant if it's a $20 cat from the pound or if it's a bloody million-dollar race horse," Mr Kahlbetzer said. You're not allowed to let animals out of your car or truck or whatever, you can't go and visit them whilst you're on the ferry, so it's totally the responsibility of the ferry to provide a safe environment, and they're not doing it on an everyday basis. These aren't the first animals that have ever died on that ferry, and there's obviously something that occurs at times on that ferry which is causing animals to die on them, so they need to have a really good look at their systems and improve them.

Reoccurring Deaths

Deaths have occurred as far back as 2011 when the Spirit of Tasmania made an attempt to explain away the deaths of two dogs. Christine White's dogs had been sleeping in her four-wheel-drive for the Friday night journey across Bass Strait from Melbourne to Devonport, but when she checked on them early Saturday morning, she found two of the three had died. Dharma, aged 10, and younger brother Trek were dog-show veterans and were reportedly in good health at the time of the trip. Dharma had had a leg amputated this year because of cancer, but had continued to perform well in shows. Another of Ms White's Rottweilers, Phoenix, also sleeping in the vehicle, survived. Ms White told 3AW her dogs had previously slept in her car on two trips to Tasmania without incident, but on this occasion staff had requested her car be moved to a higher deck than the one pets are usually kept on. Ms White said vehicles accommodating pets were usually kept on a lower deck ''in an area that is well-ventilated''. She said she voiced concerns but was told by staff: ''It doesn't matter, you will be fine up here.''

Ms White said three vets had assessed the dead dogs in Tasmania. Their opinion at this stage … is that they've died of carbon monoxide poisoning. I think because we were on a higher level, all the fumes have gone up to the top. Passengers are not permitted, for ''safety reasons'', to go to the vehicle decks to check on their animals en route. Instead, the website states that crew ''perform regular checks on pets during the crossing".


STATEMENT by Spirit of Tasmania

Hi everyone. We do very much appreciate your comments regarding the recent tragic death of the two dogs. The cause of death remains unknown. There have been some reports suggesting the dogs died of Carbon Monoxide poisoning; however there is no evidence to support these reports and we are strongly refuting these claims. The vehicle decks of Spirit of Tasmania are regularly checked by a third party provider against Australian Standards for atmospheric pollutants and we have never failed any of these regular checks. Further, the incident on Friday night occurred on vehicle deck 6. Vehicle deck 6 is a hanging deck contained within vehicle deck 5. While all of Spirit of Tasmania’s vehicle decks remain ventilated while the vessel is at sea, vehicle deck 5 and 6 are not enclosed decks - they are both open to the air. Both decks are designed with an opening at the stern of the vessel. We carry more than 12,000 domestic pets per annum. This number does not include horses and other livestock. The transportation of these animals is on vehicle deck 3, 5 and 6.

Devil Dog

Tommy with palisade in the background
I grew up in a small village in rural NSW, Australia. Sometimes I would hear a strange howling through the night, it would set off the dogs in the village and they would all bark frantically at whatever was howling. It was a spooky sound and really freaked me out. It was not a dog, not a fox, or a dingo. 

Fast forward to 2000. I was a married woman living in the same house with my husband and kids. We had two dogs and four cats. In the early a.m. hours I was woken by a frantic cat fight outside our bedroom window on the veranda. 

The veranda was enclosed by a waist high palisade. Sometimes our cats would sleep on the old couch out there. I thought nothing of the cat fight but my husband jumped out of bed and raced outside. He saw a huge dog trotting off down the road with our cat Tommy hanging from its mouth. Tommy looked to be dead. He wasn't moving. 

He ran after the dog, throwing stones and rocks at it. Lucky he was a good shot, what would I have done if it were me trying to save Tommy. The dog dropped the cat and trotted away unconcerned. It was a big animal with spots on its rear end, but it wasn't a Dalmatian or any recognizable breed. We asked around, no one in the town knew of a dog matching that description. It appeared to have simply entered town from one direction and left town by the other direction, passing our house in the night , and looking over the palisade to see a sleeping cat, probably an easy dinner.

How big does a dog need to be to pick up a good size male cat, have it fight for its life while gripped in its mouth and then jump the fence with ease? Typical dogs will shake a cat and kill it within seconds. This was not a typical dog.

My husband sadly approached the body of Tommy. Thankfully he was alive, he was breathing. He was OK. Suffering shock and very afraid. No blood,  he wasn't injured. 

I never again ignored the sound of a cat fight. And after that the cats were safely kept inside at night. Only for my husband we would have woken the  next day to find one of our cats inexplicably missing. 

We never saw the devil dog again.
