Talk to the Paw: Fighting Tooth and Claw

    Ahhh a perfect “whodunit” mystery to be solved. My dog-dog, the beloved Blue the Weimaraner would support the assertion that it’s always the cat’s fault. Always. Or maybe the neighbor dog, Hunter, who is a young whippersnapper of annoying proportions, but that’s another tale.

      And the mystery continues. I still don’t know who threw up on the carpet or who killed the bird. The bird may have just expired on its own. There was no visible trauma. But Sammy really did squirm out of her walker by twisting the latch free with her paw. The walker is a tunnel made with mesh netting and is about 6 feet long and 2 feet wide. We put the cats in it when we’re working in the yard so they can get some fresh air without endangering other wildlife. That’s the plan at least. Until one gets out, which has only happened once.

    Now I’m having second thoughts about bringing home another kitty from the animal shelter…Katie already goes catatonic when one of the neighbor outdoor cats jumps the fence and sashays into our yard. If I had to put up with that bickering inside the house, I’d go nuts.

      Yeah, cats can be funny that way. All 3 of mine usually get along fine, but sometimes Ted and Sam will have a mild altercation that involves a paw slap and a hiss or two. Otherwise they wrap themselves around each other and take a nap.
