Coyotes Will Eat Cats

Coyotes Will Eat Cats

Coyotes are born hunters; and in the spring when they are hunting for food, they will choose to eat anything that will fit inside their mouths. Research shows that coyotes will eat anything they find from garbage cans and home properties including food wrappers; fallen fruits; corn-based foods; and oh yes, cats. 

Cats are a desirable snack for coyotes; but have no fear, there are preventative steps that pet owners can take to protect their feline friends. Here are two fence types that can be used:

Metal Hexagonal Fence

A steel hex fence contains 1" x 1" mesh dimensions that are too tiny for a coyote to bite through. Having PVC-coating on the fence will add a secondary layer of protection against chew marks, as well. This type of metal yard fencing is used for coyote management by chicken owners and will keep out rabbits, deer and other pesky wildlife. 

For best results, choose a 6' coyote fence.

Cat Fencing

Cat Fences come with overhang extenders to deter wildlife from jumping in (and domestic cats from escaping). Fence for cats are available in 6' and 7.5' high systems and can be used to secure dogs in the property line, too. 


Coyotes scout for food year-round solo or in packs; and they will not say "no" to small cats in yards. To protect feline companion pets from coyote attacks, pet owners will need to be proactive in installing a wildlife fence that is at least 6 feet tall or a cat fence system. 

Animals Attack Cats

Animals Attack Cats

We know that dogs chase cats. People chase cats; and occasionally, cats chase cats. But, do you know the top wildlife animals that attack cats? There are 10 top animals that will hunt cats. The list may surprise you:

  • Coyotes
  • Snakes
  • Cougars
  • Raccoons
  • Squirrels
  • Scorpions
  • Porcupines
  • Skunks

 Some of these animals, such as the porcupine, lives in the desert regions of the United States and Canada; however, coyotes, have been seen in residential suburbs. 

Most wildlife attacks on pets occur when wild animals are scouting for food; however, if they feel threatened, they will strike. Take white-tailed deer, for example. Doe with their young are guarded; and if humans and/or pets get too close to fawns, then doe will most likely attack out of protection for their fawn.

To protect cats from wildlife encounters, pet owners should install cat fencing in the yard to allow cats the opportunity to explore the outdoors without going head-to-head with wild animals.
