Cats and dogs just love this garden. The problem is that my dogs can't stand cats.
So yesterday when I heard my four dogs making weird screeching sounds outside, I knew they were hunting "something". I ran out to find them all looking up into the dense branches of the lemon tree.
And there was the neighbour's cat looking very unsteady. Poor kitty!
Well, to cut a long story short, I dispersed the dogs by carrying two into the house and threatening the two stubborn ones with the hosepipe (they don't like getting wet) and locking them up, too.
Then I went to see if I could convince the cat to leave the premises. It didn't understand my language so I got my camera, took these photos and went for a walk to give it some space. When I got back the cat had gone home.
Thankfully, this episode had a happy ending.
