I had someone coming to collect a kitten yesterday, so I had Misty (cat) in the kitchen, so she didn't get upset. Snoop was out the back garden. The kitten leaving took quite a long time, my husband came in and went into the kitchen and I heard him going out the back. Eventually after kitten lady left he told me that Misty had escaped out of the window and was making a run for the next door neighbours mass of trees?! Thankfully, our clever dog, Snoop knows Misty is not allowed out and was lightly, erm... stopping her running away by nosing her neck, then she picked Misty up by the neck with her mouth (as you do ) and brought her back to the back door!! Misty was fine. I think Snoop must be a little confused with the kittens and all. Very clever girl though. I think.
