Frankie has been going on many walks since I have been out of work. Yesterday morning he took me to the street behind our house. There, about five or six houses up the street, Frankie found one yard that had a lot of captivating smells. I’m sure the smells had something to do with the gray and white cat that was lying in the grass and casually watching us. The cat had a collar and was probably wondering what we were doing in his or her yard.
Frankie was far too busy smelling to pay attention to his eyes. After some time, the cat decided to be friendly and started walking toward us. I thought it would be a good idea to pick up Frankie and move him out of sight before he noticed the cat.
He was upset that I took him away from all those smells but he soon found other interests. Eventually, we worked our way back to our street. This time Frankie noticed another cat.
This one didn’t have a collar and I believe it was the same one Frankie encountered before.
I do not know if these encounters with cats would end up friendly or not so friendly, but I prefer not to find out. I turned off the camera and took Frankie away from this cat too. I set him down out of sight of the cat and Frankie just sat there for a long time, perhaps waiting for the cat to come into view. After a while, I picked him up and carried him home.
On a separate note, I want to share a funny story about Frankie. About a week ago, Frankie was sitting on the cabinet that we have in front of the dining room window. I was in the kitchen and watched Frankie jump from the cabinet to the dining room table. It was a simple jump, perhaps two feet, but he missed. His front paw missed the table and he landed on his head and did a summersault and popped back up on his feet on the table like he was performing a comedy act in a circus. I wished I had it on film because it surely would have gone viral.
Love Frankie’s “fluffed up” tail when he sees the cat…..I think Frankie should forget the acrobatic tricks on the jumps around the furniture though!!
I’ve noticed cats are graceful when walking but not when jumping.
Awww maybe Frankie wanted a new friend? You did the right thing though! That kitty looks quite similar to my Angel Bobo. Your story about Frankie falling was too funny!
I just couldn’t tell if you wanted to make friends or he wanted to kick the cat out of his territory.
Oh come on ! You know Frankie MEANT to do that !
Of course. 🙂
I wish you had caught that move by Frankie because now I want to see it!
That would have been epic.
I feel so bad for the stray cat. Is there a group you can call to help him or her.
We have a lot of outside cats here, even though it is against the rules. Some belong to people and others are strays that some people feed. As long as someone is taking care of the cat, I prefer to leave him or her alone.
That was some close encounter! I’m sure glad that Frankie didn’t bust his head.
I am too. He could have really hurt himself.
Cats always insist that they intended to do whatever goofy thing they do
George Carlin even said that in one of his skits.
It’s always interesting to see how our pets react to other animals. Frankie seems like a curious dog who loves exploring new smells. Thank you for sharing this story with us!
You are right about that. He is curious.
It’s always entertaining to read about Frankie’s adventures and his encounters with other animals. It seems like he’s a curious and friendly pup. Hopefully, his encounters with cats will continue to be harmless and amicable. Thank you for sharing your lovely story!
I enjoyed reading about Frankie’s adventures during your walks! It’s fascinating how animals can be so captivated by different scents and encounters. I hope the interactions with the cats turn out to be friendly in the future. Thank you for sharing this delightful story!
Thanks for your nice comment.
