Party Crasher

Yesterday, I looked outside, through the glass doors that led to our deck. What I saw was a cat arm and paw, stretched out. And it was white. Not the color of my cat's paw. Puzzled, I went over to investigate. Sure enough, there was a strange cat lounging on my deck. I saw another nearby. Bootsy, my cat, was lounging on a chair above the two.


What should I do about this? I thought. I really didn't want to encourage regular cat visitors.


I didn't have to think long. My hundred pound German Shepherd, Schultz, came up next to me. He looked out the window and saw our two guests. He was not pleased.


He wanted out. So I opened the door. "Go get 'em, Schultz!"


And that's what he did. He busted up that cat party and sent the intruders on their way.


Guess Bootsy will have to party elsewhere!

  1. I love it. Could I borrow Schultz for a day or two? We have a couple of cats from across the street that visit our back deck. Traveler pretty much does what Bootsy did, lies on the top railing ignoring them.

    1. Just today, the white-pawed cat was strolling around the perimeter of our yard. As soon as Schultz spotted him, he started growling and getting all bent out of shape. I guess Schultz thinks his official job is to keep all other cats off our property. ;)

  2. Too funny how dogs can be so territorial... although I thought cats were the same... lol... apparently not xox ♡

    1. Bootsy is generally a laid back cat. If he has a problem with another animal, he'll whine like a baby until I come running to see what the matter is.

  3. What? Bootsy can't have friends over?

    1. No. I'm not really into being a cat lady - especially since I'm allergic to them.

  4. Thanks for the cat chuckle, Sherry. Go get'em Shultzy. :-)

  5. Bootsy should have forewarned his guests.

    1. Yes. Maybe he thought Schultz would be napping and wouldn't notice.

  6. LOL, poor Bootsy. At least Schultz had some fun shooing those other cats away! XD

  7. It sounds as if Bootsy sat on a throne above his minions. My dogs help discourage cat visitors, too. We have loads of feral cats in Jacksonville. I don't know why. They don't bother to eat the abundant rats.

    Love,

    1. I'm surprised they don't take care of the rats. They must've struck some kind of deal.

  8. And it did not fall upon your mind that maybe Bootsy was presiding over the two sitting above on his throne??? Now you humiliated him in front of his subjects... or maybe even lovers...

    1. Nah. Bootsy wasn't the least bit upset about it. He just sat on his throne and watched his friends get chased off. Then he took another nap.

  9. Animals have their own way of sorting problems.
    Great story Sherry.

    1. Yes. And Schultz is a formidable-looking German Shepherd!

  11. Not until these cats know Schultz isn't there and then they'll be back. Fingers crossed they don't have access to FB or a PAWty at your house will be all over the social media sites.

    1. Could you imagine social media sites for pets? That would be hilarious!

  12. :( You know I love cats as well as dogs. But if the cats are feral then Bootsie could pick up something, so that would not be good.

    1. These looked like well-cared for cats. But yes, that could be a problem if they were feral.

  13. Hehehe! I bet the other cats were shouting "Who invited the dog?!" as they ran off. :)

    1. Yeah. "Who let the dog out? Woof, Woof, Woof, Woof, Woof!"

  14. I am sure the cats weren't happy to have their party end by a dog. :) Wonder if they will be back.

    2. Glad you liked the story! And thanks for telling me about Pat's post! I wouldn't have known about it if you hadn't!

  16. I think the cats will be back. Cats always do things when we're not looking.

  18. Being more of a dog person than a cat person, I approve of Schultz. He sounds like a great asset.

  19. I need to borrow Schultz. I'm getting too many feline visitors and they're leaving lovely designs on my windows each night. Tell Schultz I pay well.

  20. You gotta get rid of those interlopers somehow. My dog serves the very same purpose.
