Don't Wake the Cat!

Schultz is on a roll.  If you're new here, Schultz is our hundred pound German Shepherd.  And this week, he's been bad to the bone!  Today's episode involves the cat.

Bootsy (the cat) was lying on the back deck, sound asleep.  What did Schultz do?  He went up to the cat, very quietly, and stood over him.  The cat was somehow unaware that Schultz was there.  Schultz stared at him for at least three minutes.  Then he decided the cat should get up.  So he barked.  Loudly.

Let's just say, the cat was not pleased.  He did exactly what I would have done if I were him.  He gave Schultz a good swipe on the nose with his claws.  So now the dumb dog has a huge scratch on his snout.

I hope Schultz has learned his lesson about not waking the cat!  (Now if I can only get him to stop sniffing the cat's butt when he's eating!)

    1. Haha! Actually, he woke us up yesterday at 4:30 in the morning, barking at a deer. We let him out, and he went to town chasing it.

  3. I said it once and I will say it again - Schultz needs a lady in his life :)

    1. We tried to get him to be friends with the lady German Shepherd in the neighborhood. But they're both nuts. It seems they just want to kill each other.

  4. I love the interact of cats and dogs. The 3 English Shepherds we have now don't interact well with acts. They think they are just things to chase.

    1. Sometimes Schultz and Bootsey are friends. Other times, no way!

    2. One time I put my title as, Boobs.
      That was it. Was a little funny
      and fun to see how many hits.

      No boobs in the post, though. But
      every now and then you'll see a
      wanker on my blog.

      Have a great weekend. Cheers
      and boogie boogie.

  6. They always say, "Let sleeping dogs lie." Sounds like dogs think that only applies to them!

  9. Hahaha oh no! He was asking for it though wasn't he. My dog tends to sniff my cats butt all the time as well.

    1. I don't know what the big attraction is to butt sniffing!

  10. That's funny, Schultz has a sense of humour!

  11. As long as he doesn't decide to snack in the cat box! ROFL! ;)

  12. If you figure out how to stop the butt sniffing, please let me know!

    1. I will. So far I haven't found a solution in all the dog manuals I've read. ;0)

    1. It would've been a really funny video! It probably would've won something on America's Funniest Home Videos.

  14. Schulz sounds like an ornery big brother. He will learn his lesson, eventually.

  15. We had our dog before the cat came into our lives. She knew her place where dog Sheba was concerned.

  16. Maybe he just wanted someone to play with! I can picture his "hangdog" expression. :)

    1. It's not the first time he's been scratched. Isn't that the definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? Great. I have an insane dog! ;0)

  17. Good luck with the latter.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Good luck with that... dogs love bad smelling stuff. I just caught mine out in the back yard eating her own poo. Yikes!

    1. Schultz has done that a time or two. I've heard it said that that is a sign of intelligence. Not so sure about that. ;0)

  19. That will teach him to wake a sleeping cat

  20. Some animals, like some people, are really not happy to be awoken from a lovely peaceful sleep. Let's see if your dog is going to learn this lesson first time around!

    1. I don't think anyone would want to be awakened that way!

  21. Lol, both of them are bored :)
    Nice post !

    1. Schultz was definitely bored! He always gets into trouble when that happens.

  22. Oh, poor cat. My dog does that to the poor cat too and she ends up getting him back when he least expects it.

    1. Good for the cat! I always cheer Bootsy when he puts Schultz in his place.

  23. Shame on Schultz! Cats may have nine lives, but dogs don't, so he should learn to not get on Bootsy's bad side, in case he ever wants to do more than claw his nose in revenge, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yikes. I'm sure he won't do that again.

    1. You would think he wouldn't. But Schultz doesn't always get it. It's not the first time he's been scratched by Bootsy.

    OK... I have to ask... Shultz sniffs the cat's butt while the cat is eating?... or while Shultz is eating??

    HAR!!! Either is quite a visual!!

  28. I LOVE this story and the way you desribed it - it had me laughing out loud! :) I sure hope Schultz learned the lesson - let us know if he tries it again :D

  29. I'll bet Schultz will remember the anger from your cat. Time will tell. I hope he mends his ways from now on.
