Ouch...I have a sore head!

I take Denzel (he's 6 months) to the park which is only on the next block from where I live, for a walk and play on the grass on his leash. There's never any problems, there's a small area on an enbankment before you get to into the park which is a bit secluded and if there's any dogs they're either inside or at the entrance which is at the other side of the park. He has THE BEST time chasing leaves and twigs, etc.

To and from the park I carry him so that cars dont scare him if they're loud. I stopped at the security gate at my units and saw a neighbour and spoke to them only about a minute or so and I have no idea where this greyhound/whippet dog came from, but it came around the corner faster than the speed of light and poor Denzel got such a fright - what does he do - he jumped on head, claws in my scalp and wouldn't let go. The dog didn't bark or do anything, he kept running down the street, he was interested in the cat at all.

Poor baby it wasn't his fault he got scared but now I've got stitches in my head and my head hurts

That was my adventure last night.

Oh, poor Denzel and poor you!! Hope your scalp heals quickly.
My cat before Velvet was scared silly of dogs, any dog. I was bringing her to the vet and carrying her in my arms (no carrier, not smart-I know) and a big German Shephard started barking at both of us. Clara, my cat, was petrified. Probably didn't help that I was scared too.
Anyway, get better soon!

Exactly, they do what comes naturally to them so you can never blame them for something like this. Lucky I trimmed his nails on the weekend! Its just makes you think that if you do take them out anywhere you really have to be aware of everything thats going on around you.

He's OK, he got a terrible fright at the time but he was all snuggly and cuddled up with me in bed last night.
