I don’t know what our Polish neighbours call their cat, so he is just referred to as the Polish cat. He is, shall we say, not ‘friends’ with my own cat, Mr Puds. I have never seen them fight, but I have heard them. And Puds has limped home a few times.
So I wondered what Polish cat was looking at outside my window today:
Hmm. I walked out to take a closer look with a camera, fearing the worst. What could that black blob be?
Sure enough, Mr Puds was up in the tree. ‘Scaredy cat’ doesn’t quite cover it. What’s strange is that Polish cat is perfectly friendly, and plays with the neighbours’ kids while my own cat simply runs away. What is Puds afraid of?
He jumped from the tree just after I took the photo:

Polish cat seems to just want to be friends. Mr Puds is having none of it.
