Today’s Hili photo will also appear in the Daily Dobrzyn News:
Jerry: I’m constantly afraid that Cyrus will eat you.
Hili: What an excellent joke!
Jerry: Ciągle obawiam się, że Cyrus cię zje.
Hili: Świetny żart.

Actually, I am afraid that Cyrus will nom or hurt Hili. He follows her around obsessively, so that she won’t even rest on my chest (something I much regret), as the dog is nosing at her constantly. He will not leave her alone, which is a severe stricture on a cat’s independence. Sometimes he chases her, and makes the fur on her back bristle. Cyrus appears to have been trained as a hunting dog and, as one reader noted yesterday, they had a cat and a dog which appeared to have an amiable relationship for a long time, until one day the dog snapped. . . and, well, I won’t describe the results here.
