The day isn't over but I'm taking a break from feeding/chores. 
Last night Chaps our rescue barn dog killed at least his second cat. I had suspected him but didn't have proof! 
We also rescue cats and mostly feral and socialized kittens. Barn cats get the run of the property and social cats come in/ out the house and the dog arrived in Nov 2014. 
His rules were to be good with my toddler, good with horses and good with cats. 
He is a pit bull mix most likely Rottweiler as second breed. Dumped in the country. He was not neutered and about six months old. He became our dog. 
Last night was not a single situation. I feel so bad. I make a round to check the animals and feed cats again about 9pm. Gather my house cats that evade me earlier and then let dog out to pee. 
A horrible cat scream happens and I run out with flash light to find a feral male hunkered down in bushes at side of house. 
Chaps is looking shameful and I send him in to his bed. 
Damn this isn't good. 
After an hour I get the poor wounded cat in crate. Mind you it was with a blanket and leather gloves and a cardboard box. In Nov 2015 poor TJ a socialized feral kitten was attacked and died within the hour. Before that Wild thing had been attacked and with surgery survived. Then Stripes again attacked and with vet survived. 
I couldn't get a good look at this cat. I put crate in cage with towels and heating pad and all the house cats and I sat close. 
Poor thing moaned and breathed hard for an hour more and then he was gone. 
I covered the cage with a blanket and went to bed about midnight. 
Today I showed the dog the dead cat and scolded him, bad dog. Chaps cowered and if I were my grandmother she would have tied the dead cat to the dog. But I have a toddler. Meanwhile I dig a hole and bury the cat. 
I'm mad at the dog.
