Zoey is gone
Last night when we were out for the last potty break of the day, a bobcat jumped over the wall in the backyard and grabbed Zoey. Riley valiantly tried to charge the bobcat, but the cat was over the wall with Zoey in a flash. My sons rushed out of the house when they heard me screaming and went in pursuit of the cat, but he was so fast. We searched until 1 am hoping she got away, but there was no trace of her. My youngest son is absolutely devasted. Zoey was his little princess. She had such a fun, mischievous personality. All day, Riley has gone from room to room searching for Zoey. We are all completely heartbroken.
I live in a very populous surburban area. There is a 2.5 million sq foot shopping mall one block from my house. I have encountered bobcats when hiking, but I never seen one in my neighborhood.
Zoey, my precious, little angel, we will miss you so much. I am so sorry that I could not save you.
Debbie and Riley
