Roy believed he heard the doggy door open and close, however, his two dogs were already safely in the home.

Soon after the family cat, named Lilly, went into a “frenzy” and began to “meow and scream”.

Mia went downstairs to investigate what had sent the cat into a tizzy and came head-on with the potentially vicious animal.

Speaking to Fox News, Mia explained Lilly was “terrified and calling for us to help”.

Adding her brother "immediately knew what was going on", he locked his dog Bella in the bedroom and went down the hallway toward the washing machine.

Mia said: "As soon as the coyote saw him he ran right back out the doggy door and left.

Wildlife experts believe encounters between humans and coyotes will only continue to grow, especially in the foothill areas, as housing continues to expand.
