Tripod, the cat who thinks he's a dog has shown his colours when it comes to other animals.

A stray beagle was found wandering and secured, waiting for its owner. The cat was in the greenhouse and wandered out, took one look at the dog and attacked it. The cat had to be physically removed from the dog who didn't quite know what had hit it.

I think Tripod may have had some run ins with dogs during his couple of feral years and decided to take the initiative. He was put in the house and spent his time pacing up and down, muttering to himself, dying to get back out there and have another go at the poor dog. Animals!

This is not a drawing of Tripod, but another cat, done for practice. He has that 'well?' look about him...

Our cat, on the other hand, isn't even that keen on attacking mice! Lovely, soft tones in this drawing.

Our cat "Bob Ross" rules the roost. When we first got our Golden Retriever, Bob attacked him in order to protect our other cat "Derek" (Bob's brother). The dog's been scared of him ever since. In typical dog fashion he hides his head in a corner whenever Bob's around - I guess thinking "if I can't see him he can't see me!"

So you're saying I shouldn't bring Jessie with me this summer? Unless she's ready to rumble?
