Big game to the Carreras cats and dogs are bunnies and squirrels. Of course, there are plenteous visitations by small birds. But the memorable vitiations were one fall when an immature bald eagle swooped in and grabbed a squirrel. The bold creature sat there and ate it in front of Xenia and Sam. They wisely retired indoors. But for days stayed close to the open door…just in case.
Less stressful was the visit that same fall by the moose. It just looked longingly into the yard for a half hour before moving on. Wisely Sam and Xenia choose not to hunt this large gangly creature.
