Listening for the intruder

Ally has her ears back in listening mode, she knows Max might intrude in here again.

Ally seems to know that cats can be very dangerous. Mom's cats seem to know that Ally fears them. Now Ally spends a lot of time listening for the footfalls of one of those two intruders .... mostly it's Max that gets into our room. Isn't it funny that we always hear about dogs chasing cats yet when you come right down to it they don't want to face a cat? Well, would you want to face an angry cat?

That's so odd, my pups have never turned on their kitties. But I have seen feral cats corner a husky in a neighbors back yard, the pup was about 3 yrs old and was curled up in a corner of the yard with his nose buried in his paws. At the time I thought it was funny but if it happened today I'd want to help the dog.

It doesn't sound like something a pup does when it's bonded with a kitty @crazyhorseladycx could it have been there was another pup roamin round that caught the poor kitty unawares?

That is interesting. I always see dogs chasing cats and my dog in particular loved to and she had a cat at home. I wouldn't want to face an angry dog or an angry cat.

My dogs have always chased strange cats but they never chased the cats that lived with them.

@rebelann rebelann, when I had my dog and we went out for our walks. I say that because she always walked me and not the other way around. I got a good workout. She would see cats and want to chase them, but, I would rein her in and tell her she does not have to do that because she has her own cat at home.

I have a fenced yard so if there is a strange cat in my yard Ally will chase it @Hannihar

Their paws get big and they scratch.

It all depends on the cat and, dog, but yes usually if a cat initiates contact or holds it's ground a dog won't mess with them.

It's actually worse than that, they advance on dogs. Both the newbees have been known to attack dogs so I worry they might try that with Ally, if so they'll find I'm not the kind of human they wanna mess with.
