While we were chatting, their dogs were looking at our lawn very intently because they know we have cats who are often outside. They can't chase them because they are on leashes. One of them is actually scared of the cat they have at home. But they can look. And bark a bit until they are stopped.
Boots is my little tag along. If he can find me, he will follow me. He loves me because I feed him, and because I found him when he was lost outside when we moved last year in January. And I stick up for him when Evil Kitty picks on him.
We were chatting and Boots had to follow me. Using sheer determination he walked up the hill until he was within ten feet of me and two large dogs. He just gave them a little stare down and then, while ignoring them, focused on me until the conversation ended. Once the cat sitter and her husband left with the dogs, he waited patiently for me to walk back to the house in hopes of a snack. He doesn't like dogs but its more important to him that he hangs out with me at all times.
