That's not to say I'm not curious, or that I don't know cats are around.
Sometimes on walks I choose not to notice them. When a cat runs across the sidewalk a block ahead of me, why should I get worked up? I'm on a leash for heavens sake. My Mom is not going to let go so I can get to know a cat a little better. It's not even worth barking at.
Now, on the other hand, if it's the early morning hours, before 7AM and I am not allowed outside because my girls and I are a three dog barking band, and a couple of cats are strolling and lolly gagging up and down the street in front of my house, I might want to get to know those cats better.
I might want to give them a piece of my mind and a bit of lecture about the rules of the road and street safety and I might tell them that it is dangerous to just sit in the middle of the road and stare at my house and not be aware of cars coming.
Or I might want to bite them. I haven't decided.
