The Puppies, The Animal Cops and the Cats

Hello everyone and Happy Mother's Day to all the people moms and cat moms too!

We had quite some excitement in our neighborhood cat community this week. I have a nice back yard on a hill in San Francisco. I have a couple of big trees in my back yard. Neighbor cats like to climb it. Sometimes they like to come up on my deck and visit my food lady too. Anyway, we cats like to sit on each others' fences and check out the yards, trees, birdies, etc. About a month ago, I began hearing some dogs barking quite a bit. Every once in a while it sounded like they might be crying, so I was a bit worried. I would stand at my back door, and listen to them, and wondered if we should call the Animal Cops to visit them and make sure they were ok.

Well, suprise, surprise. The dogs came over to visit themselves on Friday! They are year old puppies but they are big and very rambunctious. They have been watching us cats and decided to try and catch some of us. The puppies got so excited that they jumped over their ginormous fence and ran around my yard!!! They chased my neighbor!! They were a bit scary, and needed to go home, so we did call the Animal Cops.

On Friday, the Animal Cops called us. The Animal Cop who called us is a famous Animal Cop from the San Francisco Animal Care and Control - who was on TV. You can see her picture here.

Her name is Sgt. Forrester. We talked to her on Saturday. She told us a sad story about the puppies, but it has a happy ending. The puppies are rescue puppies. They lived with a mean person who broke the leg of one of them. They were taken away from him and came to be our neighbors because they were rescued by their new people. Sgt. Forrester visited the rescue people and said they are animal lovers who are taking very good care of the puppies. Sgt. Forrester said I might hear them crying sometimes because they are adjusting to their new home and that will take a while. She hoped that the cats and puppies could try to get along. Meanwhile, the owners are making the puppy fence even more ginormous so the excited puppies stay in their yard. We cats will still sit on the fences and wave at them though.

My food lady told Sgt. Forrester about the cat blogs and asked her to stop by and take a picture with me for my blog. Sgt. Forrester thought that was funny - I am not sure why. But she said of course she would come and take a picture with me for my blog! Now I just have to get up the courage to let a stranger - even a famous cat loving Animal Cop - hold me because I pretty much only like the food lady, food dude, and Ryan to do that. I will try to make an exception for Sgt. Forrester though.

Meanwhile, my people have made friends with the puppies' people, and we'll probably have a picture of the happy rescue puppies to show you too.

This was a happy ending for all of us. We are especially happy to meet one of the Famous San Francisco Animal Cops though.

Oh, Halloween, what an exciting thing that happened!! And you got to meet a real live TV celebrity!

I am glad the puppies are OK. Puppies like to play rough sometimes, so I do not like them, except to look at.

I can't wait to see your pictures.

Happy Mother's Day to your mom!

Hi Halloween! I've seen you in the comments section and wanted to say "hi." Halloween is my mommy's most favorite holiday.
I am a rescue feral myself. When mommy found me on the side of the road I was really scrawny and sick. They found out I have FIV sos I stay inside and enjoy window watching.
Good job getting back at those mean bluebirds. I'd have done the same if they picked on my loved ones. I have 8 bird feeders mommy hung by my favorite windows so I get to sniff at lotsa wildlife. I call it "kitty reality tv." Lots less drama tho.
I'm glad you found good beans too.
Your neighbors must be nice to rescue needy puppies and put up with the cryin. Lotsa people don't do that. That is why there are so many homeless pets. I hope you all learn to play nice...hey, it happens, there are lotsa woofie & kitty siblings on the blogosphere. Just not in my house...and we'll keep it that way.
Anyway, now that I've rambled on forever, I want to invite you over to visit me! Hope to see you soon.

You had a lot of excitement. I'm glad the puppies are okay. I don't mind woofies from a distance.
You asked if I was an indoor or outdoor kitty. When we lived in Connecticut I was both, but it's not safe to be that way down here.
I do go out, but only with Mommy's supervision. I really dont mind,because I know that she loves me. Lots of times we sit on the porch together.
