My friend dropped her dog off at my place while I was at work. I was looking forward to minding him. He's a JRT and used to live with his previous owner in my granny flat. He's a pretty smart boy and Banjo loves having him around. What I had not counted on is that he hasn't been socialised with cats.
So when I came in after work, it soon became total chaos. The JRT chasing the cat (doing that typical JRT hunting yelp - quite worrying!), the poor cat hiding under the bed, Banjo somewhere in between trying to play with the JRT who got snappy with her because he was only interested in the cat... I tried to distract him, but he won't show any interest in treats or a ball. He is just obsessed.
So I quickly put the child gate back into my bedroom doorway, I have the cat inside with me, the JRT is whingeing at the other side of the gate and Banjo is moping around because he won't show any interest in her. I'm going to have to put the cat litter tray in my bedroom, because there is no way this cat can safely go outside now with this obsessed little hunter here.
I am glad that his owners are picking him up tomorrow morning!
