A ruckus in the back yard today
We have hardly any feral cats around my neighborhood, though I did see two black cats having a howl-off two block away when walking our dogs.
This morning I went into the back yard and both of my cats (orange tabbies, fixed) were looking up the tree. Up in the tree was a black cat, and another black cat was on the fence looking down on all of this. After about a minute, the treed cat made a break for it and ran out of the yard with Arnold on the chase. Then Arnold walked down the fence and stopped 6 feet from the other black cat. More howling. A standoff.
I was getting impatient, so I let the dogs out and they saw the cat right away. Black cat #2 ran off in the other direction.
Could these two black cats that were arguing over territory have teamed up? Is a turf war brewing?
My catnip came up this week. Would fresh catnip attract cats into my yard?
