Today I bring you the fifth installment in the “Where’s My Cat?” creative series. I should warn you though that this one is a touch on the gruesome side. Unfortunately, many things that happen to free-roaming kitties are not very pleasant, and this danger is very real. I heard the Guardians of Otis talking, and this very thing happened to at least two cats that they know about. I am so relieved that they would NEVER put The Brothers and Me in a situation where this could happen to us.
If your kitty is allowed to roam free and unprotected, kitty may wander into the path of a dog that is not very friendly toward cats. Not only will you feel horrible if kitty is injured or killed by the neighbor’s dog, the neighbor will feel horrible as well. After all, even if their pet is appropriately contained in a fenced area that is escape-proof for dogs, kitties can still easily get in and out. It is the cat Guardian’s responsibility to ensure that kitty cannot put him or herself in harm’s way. Failing to exercise that responsibility can result in the worst possible outcome for kitty.
