Patches is doing much better. Her legs are wrapped and while still weak, she is walking. Although her legs were ripped down to tendons, the tendons remained intact where exposed.
Frenchie is sot doing as well. She is not able to walk. One of her hind legs is ripped completely open. She has at least three broken ribs. Her rear right leg has a huge gaping wound and the tendons are severed.
Looking up mountain lions (because we weren't sure if it were mountain lion or bobcat) and comparing then to bobcats, there is no doubt in our mind. Between the scat we have seen and the amount of damage, it is definitely mountain lion.
New rules are being established. Well, no actual new rules, just a refinement of established rules.
