Why was that cat up the lemon tree?

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.


  1. Reading about you threatening the dogs with the hosepipe made me smile! When my dog (now elderly) was a puppy I was advised to stop some of her undesirable behaviour by spraying her with water. It didn't work - she loves being sprayed by water!!

    1. Hi, thank you for reading and leaving a comment.
      I used to have a cocker spaniel like that. The hosepipe would have been seen as a game!


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment...
