This cat used to live across the street with a plumber and his two Labs, Cody and Toby. Toby is a young pup and apparently too full of himself for the cat’s liking.
The cat literally went kitty corner across the street for some peace and quiet.
The people who lived at that house noticed and started making sure the cat was comfortable. First it got a box with a pillow and some insulation. Then, a heating pad was put on the box roof. Now, with warmer weather, a blanket keeps out the night drafts.
The cat is very possessive of its property. If a dog spends too much time watching, it will stalk down the path to have a word to the wise. While dogs may not be wise when it comes to cats, owners are. We always move off.
