Please note that this anecdote is second hand - I am sure my neighbor is honest in his reporting, but ....
A neighbor told me that a fairly large cat we'd seen roaming the neighborhood was resting on the sidewalk, in the shade of a tree, when a large hawk nailed it and flew off with it.
The puddy-tat was one of those long-haired varieties, so I'm not sure how much of that "large" is fur, and how much cat. We live in a stereotypical suburban neighborhood, 40-year-old silver maples, rosebushes, juniper hedges, that sort of thing. My Beloved and Darling Wife is the mad gardening lady of the block. We're near water, so there are often Great Blue Herons overhead, and I've seen hawks around.
But, preying on a cat?
