You would feel a little differently if you lived in Southern California. Coyotes actively seek out and kill cats (and small dogs, and will stalk large dogs).

Also, while I can't say it's never happened, I've never heard of a cat owner waking up in the morning to find her living, triumphant pet with the tattered carcass of a coyote.
