I thought they were nocturnal, too!!Poor Bubbles! I hope she gave the predator two back feet! We have coyotes here and so far no problems, but just recently there were coyote attacks on people in our county reported but all 5 attacks were attributed to the same coyote which was put down. That is really unusual.
We are in a bad drought so I've been seeing some of them scouting around in the daylight hours. I thought they were nocturnal.
