The Dog on the Television

Last night the television was boring so I tuned into YouTube. There were animal videos on! SCORE!!!! Petey my Ginger Tabby cat plunked down in front of the television and watched. He chattered at the cats but what was funny was when the dogs barked he would glare at the window towards the back of the apartment building. We had neighbors move in with a large dog who was used to being able to bark at will. It was annoying to all of the humans as the dog would bark most of the night and we wouldn't get much sleep. Finally someone must have spoken to the people as the dog isn't barking all night but through much of the day...it's a bit annoying to the residents but we let it pass. Soon there was a whole series of dogs barking on, and suddenly he jumped up from the floor to the back of the chair in the window and was chattering and hissing at the back of the apartment building at that darned dog that keeps barking! I learned it wasn't just us humans that were tired of the dog barking!!!! But I never expected that kind of reaction from my sweet old orange tabby.

Cats are funny in their communication and they tell us so much with their body language. I gues you and Petey were no longer bored.

It's hysterical his reactions, he was an inside/outside cat when we lived in the country. Now he's strictly inside and he has two things he watches for...one is that dratted barking dog and the other thing is the tree squirrel that teases him. Petey's on the chair right now watching for both.

I've got the phone number for the police by my bed. I don't want to have to do it, but that dog had been keeping at least 75 people awake at night...I didn't know it included the cats! ROTFL

Petey had a nice time watching TV. I once came across a video where a gorilla was watching TV and his reactions were hilarious

I love watching animal videos, their reactions are wonderful to say the least. I keep wondering how people can call them dumb? Petey is a self appointed guard cat and he spends the night guarding the front door to my apartment. I feel sorry for anyone dumb enough to break in because with his claws there won't be anything left.

I guess pets can get annoyed with barking too.

I never realized that it bugged the cats until yesterday when I played the program. Petey's still sitting in the sun waiting for the neighbor dog to bark...it's like he's decided to do something about it if I won't!!! lol
