Big Dog/ Poor Kittens
I'm really not a dog hater even though I am a cat lover. When big dogs are away from their own yard and doing mean things something has to be done. We may be getting a reputation in our neighborhood for calling Animal Control but I could not get this big dog to leave. It was friendly and pretty but it was also killing kittens by carrying them in it's mouth. I thought Daisy had kittens under my storage shed but it's so dark under there I couldn't see for sure. The big dog had a collar on but with no info. on it. The dog was running here and there when I saw it come from the back of my yard with a tiny black kitten in it's mouth. When it put it down it was dead. The dog ran back and got a light color one and headed to the neighbor's where Daisy actually lives but bunks at my house and eats here at John's. In other words she is a neighborly cat and lets everyone admire her. Daisy had moved her kittens to my neighbor's house under his wheelbarrow which was leaned unside down against the privacy fence. We think there may be two more kittens so John ran to the phone to call Animal Control. We only have one truck and it was on a call so by the time he got here the dog had trotted on down the street and wasn't found. Susie kept her hinnie in the garage when this was all going on. She has had her experience with big dogs.
