Talking to the neighbors, who said they saw a coyote come down from the desert across the interstate, across the road we live on (looked both ways before crossing!) and into their corn field. In the 18 or so years we've lived here, and the 21 they have, we've never seen a coyote before...

May put a damper on my plan to get a barn cat.

If it's a barn cat, it will put up a fight and make a commotion. Which will give you time to get the 22 or one of the pistols and pop it.
I suggest a Siamese alley cat mix. They have quite long and sharp claws. I have a 2 inch scar on my left palm to validate.
Hell, the cat may keep the coyote away. In the past, I've seen my cats chase dogs out of the yard running on hind legs raking fur off their backsides.
