As it was noted perched on the neighbor's roof, the owner of the cat claims this was the first time her large feline as ever gotten out. Despite whether it was the first time or not, people were scared out of their wits for their chickens, dogs and other pets. One of the neighbors who just moved in recently already noted one of her chickens missing from the yard.
Of course, this large animal has to eat but no one would suspect that a neighbor's pet would be on the loose and the culprit endangering other pets in the area. The neighbor who lost one of her chickens stated that "I would hate anything happen to a child. My concern is the kids. Animals can be replaced but kids can't."
