Now if you know me personally or are friends with me on Facebook, you'll know there was an unfortunate encounter this past summer in the back yard with an unknown animal, most likely cat, that resulted in a trip to the vet, a pitiful little doggy, and very worried pet parents for quite a while. So I immediately panicked and ran out in the cold in my pajamas. There was a gray cat hanging off the side of the porch. I yelled for it to scat and stomped a few times hoping it would go away.
A few minutes later I heard something on the porch again. I looked outside, thinking it was my father in law, but the cat was clinging to the screen of the front windows. My mother in law opened the door to look.
Here is a dramatic photo reenactment of what followed:
You can see how frantic the cat was because he is quite blurry while the dog remains clear. We had to lock the dog in the bedroom for a little while, but eventually, once my father in law got home, he chased the cat away.
The dog remained unconvinced. This was over 30 minutes later.
P.S. I feel like I should add that we are not totally cold-hearted and uncaring about the poor kitty's plight. Since we live in the country, all the neighboring cats just run loose. This one was obviously well fed, so we knew it had to belong to someone nearby. As you can see from the photos, he wouldn't have got much respite here in our home on account of the terrible terrier.
