Yesterday whilst popping round our supermarket, I left our cats outside the front of our home.
On arriving home after about 2 hours, I found a distraught neighbour. Dylan our cream persian, had been attacked by a terrier. This dog apparently was running loose in front of the women owner, and proceeded to chase Dylan into a 2ft ditch along the side of a hedge Our neighbour managed to get down on her knees and drag him out, but the cat was not happy one bit
I can't see any damage, but he has been growling when we pick him up and is now very nervous and scared of his surroundings. The dog should have not been loose in the first place, and terriers are known to be excellent rabbiter's! I blame that women, she should have had both dogs on a lead. It just shows you, you can't always go out just for an hour.
It's this sort of thing that has led to us having to keep our cat on a flexi-lead in the back garden as we live next to a big playing field, so there are constantly people with their dogs running about, and often its not just the small dogs, there's some idiot with a psychotic doberman who lets it roam whilst he sits in his car on the other side of the field, a rotwieler which, although a nice dog, gets very over-excited, and a woman who walks both an Irish wolf hound and a boar hound, neither of which are on leads!
