Keep your pets safe

I have received numerous calls about the population of coydogs in Thurman. Many readers telling how awful they sound and others just sickened by the loss of their pets to these animals. As a reminder, please remember a coydog is the hybrid offspring of a coyote and dog, therefor if you spot one its best to remain indoors and not approach such a wild animal. If you have outdoor pets it may be a good choice to bring your pets indoors in the evening when coydogs are most likely to attack.

Kay Allen of Huber Road recently lost four of her house cats, two of which were “indoor” cats. Apparently, the felines escaped out a bathroom window while she was away on vacation and a trusted niece was house sitting the animals. A 9 month old Ragdoll breed –which looks like a Siamese, a 1 & ½ year old short-haired black and grey Maine Coon, a 1 year old female orange tiger striped with white paws and belly, and a 1 year old orange tiger striped male are all sadly missing. If you spot these cats please contact Kay at 623-3191 or 409-2406.

Over the fence

The second annual Giffy’s Bar-b-que at Warrensburg Elementary was once again very well attended. As of 5 p.m. on Friday, only 33 tickets remained available for sale. The employees of Giffy’s were real troopers, working in the pouring rain to provide a delicious meal for patrons.

Warrensburg Central’s own, Tim Lawson provided musical entertainment along with his Son Todd in their band titled T-N-T. The duo was a delight to listen to.
