I was taking my person to my trails and had just about gotten there when I saw something on the back of a car in the parking lot – and I stopped in my tracks.
“Real Men Rescue Cats” Now what kind of a sign is that? And what would that sign be doing here – by my trails. This is a dog and people trail. I don’t see cats on these trails. And if a cat ever tries to sneak over here from one of those houses across the street I chase that cat back to its house.
Sometimes I see real men on my trails. I even get loves from some of them. But I never see them rescuing any cats.
So what’s a real dog to do? At least I don’t have to rescue any cats.
Should I tell those real men on my trails that there aren’t any cats here and they need to go somewhere else to find them?
But then those real men wouldn’t be on my trails to give me loves.
I could still get loves from the real women because they wouldn’t need to go rescue cats.
Wait a minute! What am I thinking? Rescuing cats? Was I almost getting a soft spot for those cats that need rescuing?
Oops. Please nobody tell Scratchy about that. I’m sure glad he doesn’t read my blog.

Molly says it might be smarter if the sign said “real cats let men pick them up and take them to safety”…cats aren’t always cooperative even when being saved. Paw waves!

Molly, I totally agree with you. Most cats don’t know what’s good for them.

Bongo, we both know that real dog chase cats *waggy tail*
November 19, 2012 at 9:31 pm
Alfie, you are so right. Cats don’t hang out in my yard anymore because I chase them away. The only one I have a problem with is my cat Scratchy. He won’t run.
November 19, 2012 at 12:16 pm
Don’t you be so sure….if your Scratchy was in need of being rescued…I am sure that you would like a ‘real man’ to do it
November 19, 2012 at 9:32 pm
Patreciau, don’t let Scratchy know that I would rescue him. It would go to his head for sure.
November 19, 2012 at 12:20 pm
Real men love animals. 😉
November 19, 2012 at 9:33 pm
Dianda, I totally agree with you. It’s always the real men who are willing to give me loves when I meet them on my trails.
November 20, 2012 at 3:53 am
You meet a lot of ‘real’ men?
November 20, 2012 at 7:26 pm
Dianda, lots and lots of them are on my trails.

I love real men. I don’t care what they rescue. Rescuers are my favorite people!!
Oh, and you may want to double check on Scratchy….
Love and licks,
November 19, 2012 at 9:35 pm
Thanks Cupcake. I not only caught Scratchy reading my blog – but he was trying to steal my blog again too and write his own stuff on it. I chased him away just in time.

Every buddy’s got get rescued. Yea for the kitty rescue

Benny & Lily, kitty rescue is good – as long as they don’t all come to my house. I’ll go for the dog rescue myself. I could use another playmate.
November 19, 2012 at 4:32 pm
You are in trouble now Bongo.
November 19, 2012 at 9:42 pm
Dogdaz, I had to chase Scratchy away from the computer – but I think he knows now. Yikes!
November 19, 2012 at 5:30 pm
I think maybe the reason why there’s no cats on your trails is because those real men keep rescuing them! And you sure don’t want any fake men on the trails, do ya?
November 19, 2012 at 9:43 pm
Rumpy, fake men would not be good. So I guess all the cats around my trails must have been rescued already.
November 19, 2012 at 5:39 pm
Real men (and women) who rescue cats have big hearts and love dogs, too!
November 19, 2012 at 9:45 pm
Patricia, I guess that’s why we have me and a cat at my house. My person says she loves dogs and cats and lots of her friends do too.
November 19, 2012 at 9:05 pm
Uh oh Bongo,
Looks like Scratchy might be hot on your trail – I sure hope you’ve got a lock on your computer!!
Wags to all
Your pal Snoopy
November 19, 2012 at 9:46 pm
Snoopy, I had to chase Scratchy away before he stole my blog again. But he knows my soft spot now. I hope he doesn’t take advantage of it.
November 20, 2012 at 5:28 am
I think that by now, Scratchy knows all about your mushy heart and the feelings are mutual!
November 20, 2012 at 7:26 pm
Marina, I’m still not sure about Scratchy. He never wants to play with me.
November 20, 2012 at 7:17 am
Real men are so sweet to rescue cats! and give you loves, Bongo! I think that animal lovers are all the best!!! 🙂 *whispers* Scratchy looks so cute!
November 20, 2012 at 7:27 pm
Kevin, I’m not telling Scratchy you said that about him. It’ll go to his head and I’ll never be able to live with him. I agree that animal lovers are the best.
November 20, 2012 at 11:03 am
Well Diane rescued Moe so she must be a real woman & now I could use some rescue from that cat! He can get pretty cranky when all I’m doing is sniffing….Lola
November 20, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Lola, maybe we can get our cranky cats together and the two of us can go have a party without them.
November 20, 2012 at 3:16 pm
So then what is a fake man? Is it like those statues I see in the park that always fool me? Or maybe they made of paper? Or a stuffed toy that looks like a man? I am so confused…
November 20, 2012 at 7:38 pm
Remy, I think a fake man is one that doesn’t like cats or dogs and we wish they were statues in the park, or made of paper, or a stuffed toy that we could chew up.
November 21, 2012 at 1:50 am
Bongo, I think Scratchy would be very proud of you, if she knew you would rescue cats 😉
November 21, 2012 at 11:32 am
Angels Whisper, I’ll only rescue those cats though if they go to someone else’s house. Scratchy is more than I can handle.
November 27, 2012 at 7:51 am
We collies hate to agree with the real men rescue cats sticker.. but our Dad has rescued quite a few…. wait… is dad a real man? snicker… we are off before dad reads this… hahahah
November 27, 2012 at 11:43 am
Collies, it says it on the sticker so it must be true. I think they need to change that sticker to “Real Men Rescue Dogs” though.
