Run, Cat, Run!

Well who says that persistence does not pay off in the end?

It happened yesterday morning.

I was leaving for work, Mrs RC was there to say goodbye,Custard was there with a toy in his mouth and Frou Frou was on patrol, watching the cat that was on the shed roof.

Then something distracted Frou Frou for a couple of minutes - I think she was looking in the pond - but during this time, the cat slid down off the shed and started to settle down for a poop in one of our flower pots.

Mrs RC watched it as it went, commenting as it came down.

Frou must have sensed that something was up, and went back into Guard mode, spotted her nemesis and charged.

All hell broke loose as the cat tried to find an escape route, with a raging terrier snapping at her tail.

It finally found a gap next to the inner gate that it could get through but Frou couldn't.

Frou Frou was so proud of herself, and took to strutting around all puffed up with her tail so high I thought it might snap off!

Haven't seen the cat since - wonder if this episode will stop them coming over and keeping the other cats away?  We will see...

Bravo Frou! Way to protect the castle. I bet she scared the poop out that cat.

Frou found her inner warrior! Way to go, little Frou Frou! I doubt the cat will stay away. Cats are too arrogant to learn from such experiences. Hopefully he'll hover around just enough to keep the other cats away, but won't dare to use the flower pots as a toilet again.

Agg79 - I think you are right there!

Terri - We are hoping that it will choose a different poop spot from now on.

I hope that poor cat isn't constipated now! But yay to Frou for protecting her territory :)

Hip Hip Hooray! How proud she must be!

Furry Bottoms - Hi, good to see you! I am sure the cat found somewhere else to go.

Abby - She certainly did!

ShadowRun300 - Oh, she was sooo proud - she now truly owns the garden...

What IS IT with animals paying their disrespects to plants, anyhow?
