Verity was seen today trying to defend her home. She is better than the alarm system....lol. Unfortunately, she was defending the whole street from the dog that lives on the corner. The owners of the dog were out walking their dog and Verity's hackles rose. I had to collect her and keep her away from the dog....a lively puppy. The owners thought it amusing that I was worried about the safety of my cat when they only had a lively little puppy but I had to explain that it was their puppy I was worried about. To date, Verity has suffered no major wounds from her defending her property from dogs but it is only a matter of time. The other dog owners in the area all know about Verity and walk their dogs elsewhere......lol.
