“Honestly, there is a different poster up daily for a missing cat,” said Williams. “About four or five years ago, nine cats in my neighborhood all went missing.”
But Williams also understands that with great views and beautiful beaches comes a more wild reality on the Island.
“I feel sorry for both animals,” said Williams. “I love that on Plum Island, it’s live and let live. You can let your dogs go off-leash and the neighbors don’t complain. We have this great neighborhood of animals and it is sad now to have to keep an animal indoors. But at the same time, I feel sorry for the coyote. We took over their land as well. But I feel that something needs to be done. People can’t keep losing animals over this. The rabbit population here is crazy. I don’t know why they’re not eating all the rabbits, maybe cats are easier to catch.”
