Fighting Like Cats and Dogs

Who could believe the gall of this young cat? It actually came into MY back yard. Initially mum let me out to chase the cat thinking that this cat would be smart enough to quickly climb out of my garden. I don't know who was sillier, mum or the cat, coz the cat did not leave. And so, there we were, a beagle barking frantically at the cat, and the feline intruder trying to "make" itself bigger and hissing away.

Finally mum had to drag a very unhappy beagle into the house and closed the gate, hoping that the cat would finally go away. When she didn't see the cat, she let me out the second time. The silly cat still had not climbed out. Instead, it was hiding behind a flower pot. Duh! It didn't even take this beagle a nano second to sniff it out. At this stage, mum finally clued in that this cat was probably too frightened to climb out. So, she secured me in the house again (but why?), opened the door leading to the back alley, and prodded the cat so that it would emerge from the hiding place and leave via the open door. It worked!

That cat had better not come back again coz this beagle is on fence patrol from now on.

P.S. Now you know why the phrase "Fighting like cats and dogs" is so apt!

Excellent work. Though we are thinking a cat had better never land in our yard.

The khats here have an advantage in that I'm on my tether or my leash -

So not fair!

I have never barked at a kitty!
I'd love that one could come to my patio and play with me!
I guess the Fighting like cats and dogs does not apply for me!

Hi Kess,

Our new next-neighbour has a cat. He frequented my garden after he shifted into his new house. But it seems my fence patrol was so stringent that he has decided that he should stay on the other side of the fence. Yay, a Beagle won!!

Love ya lots
