Bubba lives across the street. He’s black like Scratchy. He used to hang out in our yard a lot. He would lay in the driveway or in the yard. Sometimes he would get on our window ledge and peek in. Scratchy would get on the other side of the window and growl at him when he did that. Scratchy seems to think he owns the area outside our house even though he doesn’t get to go out there.
What Scratchy doesn’t realize is that the area outside our house is mine. I’m the only one who gets to go out there – besides my people, that is. I had to convince Bubba of that too. It’s kind of hard to chase a cat when you’re on a leash, but I managed to do it. It’s really fun when cats run away.
I finally got the message through to Bubba. He doesn’t come over in our yard any more. He stays at home. I kind of wish he’d come back though. I need another cat to chase.

I bet Bubba will come back just when you’re convinced he’s gone for good. The cats I know are clever and stubborn that way. You can’t ever let down your guard.

Lola, I’m kind of hoping Bubba does come back so I can chase him again, but Scratchy doesn’t want him around.

There is a cat in my neighbourhood that likes to sit on top of my yard wall and taunt me. He is not afraid of my barks so I am hoping one windy day he will fall off and we can have a proper ‘chat’ 🙂

Bassa, I know this would be way too hard for me to do, but what if you ignored the cat? He might come down from the wall to taunt you further and then he’s all yours.

I’ve got two cats here that are severely in need of a good chasing. I can’t really see Raffles running though…..he’s a demon in a cat outfit.

Bones, my person told me about a dog and a cat she used to have. When the cat first came to live with her the dog chased the cat onto the bed. Then the cat turned around and faced the dog and the dog didn’t know what to do. It sounds like that cat and Raffles are related.
