Fearful Friday

RedditBlogger PostPinterestGoogle+Google GmailTwitterFacebookTumblrDeliciousWordPressShare

What do you think has gotten Dobson so spooked? Look at his puffed up tail and his posture. His back is arched in that classic cat defensive stance and he’s making himself appear larger as cats do when they feel threatened. Not only is he using his body language, but his face is clearly showing some concern. But don’t worry, Dobson was never in any kind of danger!

That back is arched and every hair is standing on edge. What’s going on? And look at the size of Dobson’s tail!

Here’s a closeup of his paw taking some very tentative steps! But don’t worry, it all turned out fine. He only caught sight of a friends dog which is what almost made him have an involuntary bowel movement!

  2. Poor Dobson, was uneasy. I am surprised he stood his ground. My 2 girls would run and hide.

  3. Why yes, something is clearly up. I wonder what it is.

  4. That’s quite a tail you have there, Dobson. I had a cat who could sense a dog being walked down the street, which she could neither hear nor see. Cats are very in tune with their surroundings.
