the truth about cats and dogs
Atlas and I were out for his noon walk. The sun was shining. The birds were singing. We saw a cat on a windowsill, basking in the warm sun. All of a sudden, a black and white spotted nose pushed up to that same window and the owner of the nose began barking, “wuff, wuff, wuff, wuff.” The cat swatted the dog on the nose – hard. He backed up a little, then pressed up close again. “Wuff, wuff, wuff, wuff, wuff.” The cat swatted him again – twice. He pulled his head back again, just for a second, then came back. “Wuff. Wuff. Wuff.” The cat looked at him with a very aggrieved expression, turned, and jumped off the windowsill onto the bed.
