If you live in a city with a small dog or cat, you may think you don’t have to worry about predators. Think again! Janice, furmom to the darling Tico el Bandito, barked in to warn all Dogsters and Catsters to watch out for hungry predators.

It’s cold and many larger birds and other animals are hungry. Keep an eye on your smaller furbabies!

And Janice, please bark back in to let us know about Tico!

Yesterday morning my Chihuahua was attacked by a hawk in my own backyard.



I live in a suburb of Chicago off of a busy street.

I had to fight the hawk for my dog and then rush him to the hospital where he is in critical condition.

I thought you might be interested in this as a warning to other pet owners.
