Cats and dog

These cats are supremely confident they can handle Tyson!
Tyson looks for an opportunity!

These are just two of the (i am guessing) nearly 100 cats that stay in our residential compound.
They are everywhere – around car tyres, on the roof, in the garden, on trash cans and even sunbathing at times.
They are quite harmless but we have to be extremely careful of our mutt Tyson attacking and killing a few.
He has a history as a cat killer but we’ve tried very hard to keep him under check. He has, however, made several unsuccessful attempts in the last few weeks at getting them in his vice-like grip but I am sure, it won’t be long before he hunts down one.
The cats, however, seem to be oblivious of the danger lurking behind the picture windows. These two, for sure, seem supremely confident they are safe and even gave me “those looks” as I took the picture.
What they don’t know is that the ‘catch me if you can’ attitude can be a killer because Tyson is planning a strike any time soon – he just needs to sneak out somehow.
Until then, it’s a cat and dog game, with a couple of us two-legged creatures thrown in!

    I just have to comment… I could use Tyson here on our little ranch! I think he’d be quite happy to eradicate a few feral cats, and maybe the red foxes that seem to have taken over the place! Tyson looks like just the fella we need around here… however, he must be DEER friendly! Ha ha!! Great post!

      We could loan hi for a while – provided a two-way fare and five-star hospitality is provided!

  2. I think cats are pretty good about looking after themselves. I guess if there are so many about, you won’t have a rat problem.

      That’s right. We have not seen mice here but there was one once and it seems to have become the cats’ meal perhaps!


  3. If you really don’t want him to kill those poor creatures you may muzzle him when you take him out on walks, and if those dumb creatures enter the house… well…

      We just play it by ear and don’t feel the need to muzzle him. Healthy competition perhaps!
