Nine Lives Come In Handy In this Neighborhood
Susie used another of her's this afternoon, but she is okay. We heard a commotion in the yard and it was two medium size dogs chasing Susie. One of the dogs was able to tear some hair off one of her legs but didn't bring blood. She was able to escape when we yelled and John threw his shoe at the dogs. Up the tree she went and had to be coaxed down so I could put peroxide on her bare spot just in case. The dogs ran across the street and had Daisy treed somewhere around the neighbor's truck. I went over with a large broom to try to make them leave. They got her and drug her to another neighbor's yard. She was fighting hard and I was screaming for someone to call the dog catcher. When the dog catcher got here the dogs were friendly to him and he was able to catch one and he had to follow the other dog on foot down the next street. After we got Susie doctored and calmed down we left for the ranch and there were two dog catchers on the next street. I know, not the dogs fault. Owner of pets need to be responsible and the city needs to inforce rules but we couldn't just stand still and let the dogs kill a cat that stays in her own yard because she has been spayed. About Daisy I'm not sure who her real owner is. Someone put a flea collar on her and she doesn't beg me for food anymore but she does stay across the street in my yard. She seems to like to be a loner and it is quiet and shady over there. She does look pregnant often but we never see her kittens anymore or hear them.
