For years one of the neighbour’s cats would come in through a window on the one section of my house. On the odd occasion he would come also spray.
This I found a bit annoying as I am a bit of a cleanliness freak. I had to leave the window open for the old girl cat to go in and out, but she was too old to ever take the imposter on, and I did not expect her to either. Also, my cat, HRH was too young. I even tried leaving food outside for the imposter so that he could eat and leave.
Now I have changed everything, and have a nice little spot in my bedroom for the cats to go out. The cat imposter window is kept closed. The imposter cat has tried to come in there once or twice, but since I am a light sleeper, I wake up straight away, and he makes a dash for it.
Last night though, I heard a plaintive meow. I jumped out of bed, thinking that one of my cats might have been harmed.
Peering through into the dark, I saw a tussle, and then within seconds, I saw his Majesty, HRH, slinking in a very leopard like manner, towards me…very, proud, and satisfied with himself. He didn’t have a scratch.
He chased the huge trespassing cat away. I told him what a clever boy he is, and I could swear I heard him say “I know.”
