Love at a distance between cat and dog

A neighbor’s dog falls in love with the cat next door. He sits at the railings…

Dear Neighbor – This is going to seem ridiculous, but I thought you should know that my dog (who loves next door at….with me) is madly in love with your cat….and has been for probably 6 months! Three times a day he puts his paws on your railing to look at him/her in your windowsill. Now that you have potted plants there he is heartbroken…but keeps looking for your cat every time. Maybe your plants could switch to a different window??!

From Your neighbor and her adoring dog.

The response was positive and understanding which is nice. The neighbor moved the plants and put a sign up in the window:

Interspecies relationships are charming: cat loves owl.

I guess the big question is: did the dog really love the cat? It is quite possible that he did. The only way to find out is to put them together. That must have been the logical next step.

  1. The dog wanted to chase the cat. I doubt it was love. If they were raised together, it is possible they could have a bond. But I think this dog looked up thinking, “Prey!” That’s why he looked so longingly. Monty does not love the birds and chipmunks he watches so intently through the window. He wants to give chase.
