Siamese cats and dogs?
(North Canton, Ohio)
When I was a kid, I had a beloved bullhead Siamese cat named Clifford.
He refused to be an indoor cat no matter how hard we tried to keep him in.
He became a voracious hunter and torturer of chipmunks and climber of 30 foot trees, and roamed the neighborhood looking for adventure. Yet we could always get him to come in by blowing a whistle.
Sometimes he'd come home a little glossy eyed and we found out that he was at a neighbor's house where he'd play with a Bull Mastiff he liked and indulge himself with catnip.
Apparently, he liked to swing from the poor dog's jowls with his claws, but the dog never hurt him.
One day I was talking with a next door neighbor and he had his large dog not on a leash.
Like a gunslinger from the old west, Clifford came out of the bushes, swaggered slowly towards the dog and walked him off our property.
My neighbor said: "I guess we know who's boss...."
