Nobody versus the dog and cats acting like dogs
As you may have read in a previous post I had a cat named Nobody. She would pal around with her mom Nina outside. Now she wasn’t as fearless as Nina was but she had her moments. Well, all of our neighbors had dogs and one of those dogs was a Shetland Sheepdog. One day I was out in the yard feeding the fish in the pond when I see Nobody in the yard next door. Well, that Shetland dog took off running after Nobody and she ran right under their deck. She must have been looking for exercise or just wanted to mess with that poor dog’s mind. Because she’d run out from under the deck half way into the yard and right back under the deck. She did this a few times before scaling the chain link fence back into our yard. That poor dog didn’t know was going on. He just kept chasing her back and forth. All I could do was stand there, watch, and laugh. Because it looked like he was confused and she looked like she was laughing because he couldn’t catch her.
Because of all the dogs around us Nina the cat picked up some dog like tendencies. One day I walked the 2 blocks to my friend’s house so we could go for a walk. Well Nina followed me there and sat outside for 5 minutes while I went inside and Wanda was getting her shoes on. We come out and start walking with Nina following us. About halfway through our 2 mile walk Nina takes off on her own. I think nothing of it as I know she wanders the neighborhood. We finish our walk and Nina comes home an hour after I do.
