The video says it all!
It is worth noting that only 5 minutes after taking this video, Alfie lunged towards one of my other cats.
The cat in question was Felix, who had been attacked by dogs as a kitten and is understandably nervous of dogs. He was giving the “I’m afraid of you” signal as he left the kennels and Alfie immediately picked up on it. No harm was done, except perhaps for a few bruises, and Alfie left Felix as soon as he was called.
Nevertheless we’ll be taking a few precautions next week!
