I don't blame you! He's such a cute little thing. We lost three cats to fishers one year.

Yeah, we lived way back in the woods of Vermont on 20 acres, five miles off the paved roads. I should have known they'd get eaten. Same thing happened to all our chickens in one night, not one feather left behind.

I lost a goat once too, when I lived in Virginia. I never found out what happened to her, just poof, gone one night.

Bought, built a run out of posts and chicken wire, and set a batch of chickens and a rooster in.
The next day............... All gone! Something dug under it and ate-took them all. Nothing but a trail of tears-feathers.

Instructions

1 Bait the live trap with either rolled oats or a mixture of rolled oats, black oil sunflower seeds and peanut butter. Once you've trapped a squirrel, proceed with caution.
2 Put on thick leather gloves, and place the bag over the trap's opening, holding it with one hand.
3 Blow on the trap, or tap the other end of it to get the squirrel into the bag...

I had an interesting encounter just now, I stepped out onto the balcony in my red robe when I heard a buzzing all around my head. I could feel the wind from the beating of his wings on my neck and hear the buzz close to my ear.

A hummingbird thought he hit the jackpot with a big red flower! When I turned around to look at him he realized it was just me, what a disappointment!
