Cat Attack

The boys are in trouble.  Which ones? My husband and our 100 pound German Shepherd, Schultz.  They were very, very bad!

My husband had the brilliant idea to go to the pet store with Schultz to get him more food.  They marched into the store and got the stuff, but instead of just paying and leaving, they decided to do a grand tour of the store.  Which took them right to the cat section.  The cute little puddy cats were all snuggled in their cubby holes minding their own business.  Schultz spied them through the clear glass windows.  So did my husband.

"Get the cats, Schultz!" he said.

Schultz was very happy to oblige.  He jumped up against the window and barked ferociously at them.

Of course that raucous attracted the attention of the pet store employee who came running to see what the problem was.  She flipped her lid.  "What do you think you are doing?" she hollered at my husband.  "You're traumatizing the cats!"

That didn't faze my husband or the dog.  My husband grinned and the dog wagged his tail.  They wandered off while the employee tried to soothe the poor, frightened cats.

(I'm absolutely positive that my husband and Schultz are banned from all Petsmart stores across America for that nasty stunt!)

  4. Shame on Husband. The Hurricane and I used to take Emma the Labradoodle to PetSmart to watch gerbil TV. She would sit and stare at them, absolutely transfixed. A guy waved his hand in front of her face once and she didn't look at him or blink.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Wow. I guess gerbils can be fascinating to a dog!

  6. Poor cats. Just watching my cat's uneasy reaction whenever a big dog enters the vet, I can't imagine their horror when something like that happens.

    1. They had to be terrified. Schultz is a very large dog!

  7. I don't think cats could be traumatized just from being barked at, could they? Your dog might've just been trying to be friendly.

    1. My husband knew exactly what he was doing. He's always encouraging Schultz to bother our cat!

  10. Poor cats but sometimes you just can't help yourself! They actually let you take your pets into Petsmart? I never knew, but I live in a small town and buy my dog food at the farmers supply

    1. I hope so. I know I won't be bringing Schultz or my husband back there any time soon!

  12. Yes, I think Schultz and your husband should stay out of Petsmart for safety's sake. By now, the kitties probably recovered. We didn't have a great reputation at Petsmart either. But our dog, Riley, used to go to Petsmart and eat every pigear he could sneak into his mouth. They had them in little containers at the end of the aisle. When we went to checkout, we'd try to calculate how many he gobbled!
