And the ain't cats.
|Amazing the cooperation when there is a treat in sight.|
As you know we have heaps of cats in our 'hood,
And Dui is always in hyper-mode scanning the area
Our early morning walks are taken in the dark
lit by streetlights.
Cats usually appear as furry puddles with flattened ears
watching us intently
or sit upright like statues.
They know the dogs can't get them.
Dui always stops, glares and lunges to get them to run.
(Cats that don't move are useless.)
On later walks,
Dui also stops, glares and occasionally lunges
at ain't cats.*
Ain't cats can be plant pots, water meters, shoes left by
a front door, garden ornaments, bit of rubbish, piles of
Dui is always at the ready to Stop, Glare and Lunge.
(and usually tangles the leads.....sigh.)
*Ain't Cats is the term SHE uses based on Stymie (The Little Rascals) who
once ate half a bucket of Ain't Ice Cream before discovering it was lard.
