So recently I have become convinced that my little girl Basett hound is part cat. I have tried to figure out how this has occurred since we do not have a cat in our family so I have come up with several theories on the matter.
1) She must have been close to a cat when she was still with her litter mates and learned these skills there. Or maybe she had to climb over her bothers & sisters to see what was going on.
2) She secretly has been watching neighborhood cats while out instead of doing her business, which also explains why she wants out right after she comes in. Also explains her uncanny camouflage and stalking abilities.
3) She has been googling them because her sisfur dared her to, also explains why Petsmart, Petco and Basset Daily are bookmarked. We have also started receiving monthly Barkbox, coincidence, perhaps.
4) Miss Lilly is just a typical goofy Basset hound who likes to give her mom heart attacks by taking daredevil leaps on and off things she isn’t supposed to. She also has problems seeing do to short legs.
So does anyone else out there have a dog that thinks they are a cat? If so do you constantly worry about falling and back problems? Do you wonder where they got their skills to? I think we need a support group!
One thought on “Basset cat”
Yep, happened to my basset too! She also thinks she can fit on laps and should lean against legs…
