Johnny was just wrapping up his weather report when he realized he was being watched
and got a case of stagefright.
Smooch had never seen a cat do the weather before and was intrigued.
Johnny: You don't scare me, you know...ok, maybe just a little bit.
Johnny: I think we could be friends if you just wouldn't bark at me. I hate that noise.
Smooch: Sorry. It's my job to alert mom of trespassers.
Johnny: I am not a trespasser! I live here and don't you forget it!
Smooch: Don't you raise your hackles at me!
Johnny got his back up but backed off.
Smooch backed down and stopped barking.
I'll score the encounter as one small step toward peace and harmony in my animal kingdom.
Johnny went to the local watering hole to celebrate.
