Nieghbor apologized...

Ok, so a week ago or so my neighbor told me he doesn't like cats, so I kind gave me a little piece of my mind. So today, I saw him and he asked me if I got offended by what he said. So, I told him I did get upset because I love cats as much as he loves his dog. I told him the cats are fixed so no problem about them reproducing. Then, he said he didn't mean for me to get upset. He then said that "he loves cats" because his grandmother had two cats when he was a child. He said that that the day he was tired, had a bad day at work, and his dog was misbehaving. I so I thought in my mind "and why is that my fault?" but I didn't say anithing. He even was saying "hello" to the cats lol. Ohhh I guess he is crazy, but I guess he loves cats lol.

It probably took a lot for him to say what he did.

I think we've all been there, when that last straw hits us and we take it out on someone else who had nothing to do with it.

I'm glad things are calmer.

My suggestion would be to stop and pick his dog up a nice bone, put a bow on it and leave it on his doorstep or give it to him.

Some extra brownie points to keep your cats safe and I bet if you cultivate him a little he'll even begin to enjoy them. Also, he was a good boy for apologizing so you want to reward his behavior.

Glad to hear. I agree with the peace offering idea. It was very big of him to not only own up to his mistake, but to let you know it.

I know but why was that my fault that he was having a bad day? I mean if someone comes to you and slaps you would you stay still without doing anything?...sometimes you just have to defend yourself. I am the type of person that if it is my fault I apoligize. If it is not my fault, I won't talk to you (if not ask my hubby lol). People need to take responsibility for what they they do. He did take responsibility and I liked that. I hate when people do something bad to you, and then then they see you again and they act like nothing has happened.

I love that idea of buying his dog a bone...nice one. Will go to the store tomorrow...and do that. Of course, I will not tell him you gave me that idea, so I will take full credit for that lol.
