Coyote! He is known as the trickster in most North American Indian tales (Mommy has NW Indian heritage). But in the Pacific Northwest tribes, Coyote is also viewed as a respected benefactor of humans, responsible for such important deeds as bringing fire to the people, teaching them the arts of civilization, and helping to shape the world for their benefit. In some tales, he is the creator of humanity or even the world, often in cooperation with other divine animal spirits.
They are a versatile species and their range has grown as the Wolves has shrunk and they has also adapted to living in urban areas. Where we lives in Calgary is close to what is called a “fringe” area. and wes gets lots of wild life that yous would not see closer to down town. And we sees Coyotes.
For foods, They prefers the rabbits and mice, but they will eat cats. In Midway, we is in the middle of the country and there are 2 active large coyote packs and 1 wolf pack. Coyotes is smart. Smarter than dogs! And purrhaps smarter than us cats! In the country (where Midway is) they don’t hunt domestic pets, unless they is really hungry as they knows peoples will gets mad and hunts them!!! However, they don’t has the same restrictions towards livestock. They knows peoples eats them so they figures they should be ables to eats them too!
Not to tempt them, wes is kept in the house after supper (we eats at 4:30) and Cinnamon is not allowed out at night without being watched.
Coyotes is a necessary part of the eco-system and even though they can be dangerous to us cats, wes respects them and they respects us.
Now, in our house, wes has the trickster of all tricksters!!!! Jo Jo steals shoes, Cinnamon’s balls and anything that catches her fancy. Now here’s some shots of all of us today!
