Re: [RC] Cats and Horses - April Johnson

I have a little 1 year old male (fixed) cat that just loves the horses.
Whenever I've got the horses up in the holding/feeding/round pen, Miner is
right there checking things out and just being all cute.

He scares me though. He thinks the horses are like other animals (people,
dogs, other cats) and I've often seen him rubbing on the horses' legs.
Usually it's ok if the legs are the front legs because the horses see him,
but I've also seen him walk up to Serts and rub against Serts' back leg!
Serts didn't know he was there and had a very mild reaction and just stomped
his foot, didn't kick.  Miner was quite confused that his friend would react
such a way, but didn't move very far off. I'm not even sure Serts ever knew
it was the cat, even after he stomped. To be safe, I scooped the cat up and
put him in the house, but it sure did scare me! Some cats can be TOO
friendly to horses, I think!

Horses like cats too, but mine wouldn't stay
in the stall with the horse.  and when the cat left, the horse fretted.
