    Re: Cats and dogs...


    OK, so last Sunday neighbor dude actually managed to get the cat down. He had been up about 9 days, I believe.

    Credit where it's due, the rescue was actually entirely uneventful. Dude has some tree experience.
    Now... The days of this cat roaming the hood, starting shit with the dog, using my driveway as a litter box, etc are done, right?
    The wife and I put the house over/under at 10 days until he's back out.
    I should have taken the under. He's baaaaaack.

    I give you credit Mike! If that cat were in my neighborhood and using my driveway as a littler box...your neighbors would either have me arrested, or take care of the cat on their own. Every single thing they would need to touch in their everyday lives to and from their house, would have cat shit on it. In the mailbox, under the door handles of the car, door knobs to the house, etc...or I'd just shoot the fucken thing and toss it over the fence

    I remember him. He hopped into the trunk of my car as I was loading my tires. I almost drove off with him, in fact. I thought he was very friendly.

    I haven't been able to spot him, but it's at most just off of the corner.

    Should your neighbor continue to have to climb trees to retrieve this cat, he himself may feed it to your dog.

    I think he's back down (for now). There were ladders and ropes and whatnot last night as the sun set.
    He'll be back out when I get home tonight. Isn't the definition of crazy "doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results?"

    Re: Cats and dogs...

    Life in the suburbs is weird.

    Just rolled out back, four beers in after a weekend of skydiving. I smell like Jet-A and give zeeeeeeeero fucks.

    "Cat's back up, yeah? You need to borrow a shotgun?"

    "I think I'm just gonna let him marinate up there for a few days."

    "I think if that cat could come down it would..."

    "Yeah, but I don't want to make it easy for him."

    "Okie Dokelie, then, let me know if you want that 12-GA."

    Re: Cats and dogs...

    I just read this the whole thing through and had a few good laughs myself. Haha thanks for the story.
    We have a situation with our dogs and our neighbors 2 dogs, they all get along fine but the problem is our neighbors leave them outside all the time and are never home. So their dogs will just walk up onto our patio door and get our dogs all riled up and we don't let our dogs run outside unleashed because we live so close to a busy road but the neighbors don't seem to care. Its too bad because if we didn't live on the road I'd have no problems with our dogs staying outside and playing with them. But I don't want to be responsible for one of their dogs if it decides to do a dash into the road and gets pancaked. So the best i've been able to come up with is to not let the dogs interact to avoid them getting used to being welcomed in our yard.

    Is the most recent treeing the result of your dog or does it just want to run up a tree every time it gets scared? I'm curious how you've been handling your dogs interactions with the cats since the original incident, if the cat avoids the fenced yard etc.

    Re: Cats and dogs...

    Cat hasn't been back into the back yard (at least that I'm aware of). Seems he learned that lesson immediately. Strange that he can't seem to make the connection between climbing and the resultant misery.

    The dog will whine at him if he's within view, but the cat doesn't usually get close at all anymore. Most days they don't even know each other exists.

    Not really sure why he keeps climbing trees. I'm guessing that he's chasing chipmunks or something. I suppose something could be chasing him up the tree, but I doubt it. There are coyotes in the mix and I have seen a fisher a mile or so away, but nothing at all close to the house. I think this is his seventh or eighth stint in a tree. If it was always him getting chased up there I suspect I (or our dog) would have at least seen the coyote, fisher once.

    Re: Cats and dogs...

    If it were a Fisher, it would probably have killed the cat in the tree. They are incredible climbers.
    I sometimes think cats just dare themselves to climb up into trees. I've seen them just off and run up the side of a tree 15-20 feet, stop, look around, and get a WTF look on their face. Kind of like feline compulsory disorder or something.
