Yeah, he won’t. I have seen him chase him off his supper bowl, but I don’t blame him there. He tolerates him for the most part.
The cat does aggravate the dog sometimes by running up behind him and pouncing him like he’s a tiger and the dog’s a wildebeest or something. He just bounces off him, it’s funny to watch, but I figure the dog is highly annoyed by it.
We usually feed the cat some kibble every day, but when it starts warming up, we’re going to skip a few days once in a while so he’ll do more hunting. After I fed them this evening, I last saw the cat trotting down towards the barn. So he’s getting some varmits; I found a pile of feathers in the barn the other day, nothing else. So I imagine he ate the whole thing and left those.
He seems to be handling the cold okay, even though he spends the nights under the house by the ductwork. He probably weighs about 5lb now. You pick him up and sometimes he looks like he swallowed a tennis ball.
