Talk to Cassie – Doodle The Dandy Dinmont

Scroll down to content

Today I have been helping Doodle a young Dandy Dinmont who is being traumatized by his family’s cat.

Doodle
Doodle – Isn’t he cute?

When Doodle arrived at his new home, he was so happy.  He had his own room, his own little bed, delicious food and his new family were giving him lots of love and attention. He thought that he had chosen his new family well.  He had noticed a funny smell in the house, but didn’t dwell on it too much as his life was just perfect.

He was only 10 weeks old when it started.  He went to bed that night and was just about to go to sleep, when he heard a scratching noise at the window and a strange hissing sound, which turned out to be Gremlin the cat.

Gremlin the grumpy, grey cat
Gremlin the grumpy grey cat – just imagine meeting him in the dark. Poor Doodle has to deal with him on a daily basis.

Gremlin came through the window and started circling Doodle’s bed with his back arched and a Basil Brush tail.

Here is my family member Tilly demonstrating the pose. not very nice is it?

“Just as I thought”.  Gremlin hissed.  “The bad smell in the house is dog and you are the reason I have been shut out for the last two weeks.  Well … dog … my name is Gremlin and I hate dogs.  I don’t like the way you bark.  I don’t like the way you wag your stupid tail and I particularly don’t like the way you smell.  I have been in this house for 10 years.  It is mine and I don’t want you here.  Understood?”.  He hissed, his grey head getting so close to Doodle that he could see his yellow teeth.

Doodle is nearly a year old now and his life is a misery when his family are not around to protect him.  It sounds to me that Doodle’s family are not entirely relaxed with Gremlin either.  Gremlin ambushes him, eats his food and taunts him by flexing his claws when he is sitting a few inches away from poor Doodle.  This poor pup lives in fear of a grumpy grey cat and his self-esteem has hit rock bottom.  Gremlin cannot be allowed to continue to behave like this.  It is shocking dog abuse.

Doodle didn’t believe me when I said my best friend was a cat, so I introduced them.  We do everything together Ollie and I, including having the odd snooze.  Ollie wouldn’t hurt a fly, even if he could catch one.

I have told Doodle that he is doing nothing wrong and to start with he should try growling at Gremlin every now and then, just to show him he is no longer frightened.  Doodle didn’t think he could do that because he is still frightened of him.  I am afraid that poor Doodle will certainly need further counselling and I will help him for as long as it takes. In the meantime, I would also like to tell Gremlin what I think about him and I have a plan.

So for all you pups out there who are having to put up with fiendish feline behaviour, take heart and think on, where there is a bark there is always a bite.
