For nine years we had a horrible cat named Fonzie who was given to us under false pretenses. Even though I am a cat lover, I could find nothing to love about this cat other than the fact that in the almost-decade he spent at our house, he caught two mice. Fonzie also bullied Bridget the Scottie dog mercilessly even though she desperately wanted to make friends with him. And his taunting sessions almost always ended in ear-splitting yapping.
Unlike, the cats and dogs in my past who had always learned to get along — eventually — with Fonzie and Bridget, the situation went from bad to worse over the two years they lived together.
Last summer I was finally lucky enough to find a good home for Fonzie in the country. I waved farewell and have barely looked back since.
When we took over our new house, the owner’s two cats stayed on temporarily, but they too could not conceal their contempt for Bridget and drove her bonkers so it with complete awe that I watch this video of a sweet quiet Scottish Terrier named Kelly and her cat BFF, Smokey. (After 75 seconds, it’s Smokey solo)
Not mention this video filled with more cats and dogs who are best friends forever.
Where oh where did we go wrong? Will Bridget ever be able to befriend a cat?
