Cat Catching #101

First off....race outside and circle the yard, barking like crazy. They all hide. Then, let them think you've gone back inside. Sidle up to the back fence and sit really still, so like you blend into the wall. Don't even move a muscle if Mom calls you. Ignore Mom when she tells you to come in. Most important...DON'T MOVE!!

Next...the cats will look over the fence and see if you're there. They don't see you because you look like part of the wall. They venture over...and KABLOOEY!! The chase is on. OHhhhhh....I can't TELL you how much fun this is. You absolutely have to try it.

Tonight, I sat there for maybe a whole half hour and Mom came outside in her fuzzy socks to get me. I let her come about 2 feet away....I held really still, then WHOOOOSH! I race away. Finally, she says very seriously. "Mary-Margaret, that's ENOUGH!!". So....that's ok. I had my fun. I run a couple of circles around her and then WHOOOSH through my doggie door.

Over and out.

Love, Mary-Margaret

Hey Mary-Margaret. You sure sound like a really fast doggie. Have you really caught a cat before?

Sophie has a similar relationship with all her neighbour cats ... and one that might just like to attack her too! He's a very small exotic looking cat whose missing a front leg, but he's fearless! I'm scared of him and I walk on two legs and carry a big .... bag. Okay, okay, not a stick. Just a big purse.
