Cat attacked by neighbours' dog
Off on a tangent, why do dog owners have to pick up dog poo or be fined but cats can dump where they please,
Density and location, I expect. Ie, with dogs, you have lots of dogs going to the toilet in relatively concentrated areas (where they’re being walked, which by definition is where people like to walk) and pooing competitively in prominent places to mark territory. Cats roam far and wide so you don’t get the same concentrated areas, and tend to try and hide their poo rather than going “look, I did that!” like dogs and stag parties do.
mainly on my flower bed till I terrorised all the local cats who find it best to avoid our garden now.
I’m not sure this forum is big enough to contain the sheer size of your testicles.Posted 5 years agoSquidlordMember
anybody good at the forum searching who could find out who started the ‘it could be a childs face next time’?
Think I remember the thread, but couldn’t find it. The phrase has escaped, and is now breeding in the wild: It could be a child’s face next time.

Were there any independent witnesses to the attack?
Apparently the Guinea pig was in the garden at the time but the other lurcher must have got to him as he’s saying nothing.
Just burst out laughing on a very quiet campsite, now everyone is staring, thanksPosted 5 years agoWoodySubscriber
Glad the cat is on the mend.
If a dog comes into my garden and attacks my cat, may I kill the dog?
As has been posted ^^ as long as it was reasonable/last resort, I would have thought yes.
On that note, a guy at work was in the position where his dog was attacked (in a public place) by another dog off the lead, which wouldn’t let go or stop the attack despite being kicked etc. After warning the other owner, he took out his *knife and cut the attacking dogs throat. Police were involved and no action taken as it was deemed justified.
*Dog was out for pre-work walk and knife carried for work purposes.Posted 5 years agocupraMember
As a Lurcher owner my dog is kept securely in the garden, but has been known to chase after cats that roam into the garden. It’s even had a couple of cats in its mouth but lost a clump of head hair and had a bleeding nose to show for it.
If my dog got out of the garden and hurt a neighbours cat i would pick up any vets bills and make sure it didn’t happen again. Any cat coming into the garden when the dog is out is fair game. Darwins law.
This. Writing as an owner of 2 lurchers. In my garden the cats take their chances…..Posted 5 years ago
