黑社會

(Note: You need Big5 to read the bottom)

I was out walking with Maomao today and just as we made the final turn to the staircase, there was a lady with her dog next to the staircase. Usually people’s first reaction at seeing Maomao is “He’s so big" or “That’s a big cat," so I was startled when she said, “Is that your cat? He’s a mean cat." So it’s most likely not her first interaction with Maomao, sad to say. Her dog was next to her standing very alert and looking kind of scared and didn’t make a sound. He looked to be about the same weight as Maomao, if not a little bigger. So far we’ve only met one other dog who reacted this way to Maomao, and Maomao’s reaction this time was very similar to that time too. All the other dogs either bark like mad or desperately want to chase Maomao, and Maomao runs away in those situations. It’s like Maomao finally sees a dog that’s scared of him and he’s totally going to bully the crap out of the poor dog. The lady went on to say that Maomao’s a fighter and had beaten up her dog before. I was going to shoo Maomao the other way so the dog can get away, but Maomao responded by planting his butt firmly on the ground and trying to win the ongoing staring contest against the dog. The lady asked if I could pick him up and take him away, and I was reluctant at first because I wasn’t sure how he was going to react, and finally he did squirm a bit but stayed put mostly. I tried to apologize for what happened between Maomao and her dog, but she said something along the lines of don’t worry about it and some animals are just born fighters. From her tone I don’t think she finds Maomao mean the way Miss Mulch/Wicked Witch of the West hates Toto’s guts, it’s just that Maomao is the kind of animal who would go picking fights.

Sigh, I just really don’t know what to say in situations like this. I want to apologize to people about Maomao’s past aggressions, but this was before I had met Maomao. While it’s fun to hear about Maomao’s fun past, this dark side is pretty disconcerting since it doesn’t line up with the mellow pet and scared-y cat we’re used to seeing, but that’s like what some of the owners of the dogs that mauled people might say. We really need to work on walking Maomao with the leash. It’d be better for everyone around.

Maomao 原來是欺善怕惡的… It’s like he’s in 黑社會.唉!

  1. Hey, it’s really funny to hear your cat’s “dark side". A cat can beat up a dog is AWESOME!! Too bad for those “chicken" dogs……
