Dear Ginger: I’m in love with the cat next door. He lives on the recycling bin. Unfortunately, he rebuffs all of my advances. Whenever he gets in a cat fight he puts out a call for help. I bark until my owners let me out to rescue him. I’m starting to feel used. How can I get closer? ~Stumped
Dear Stumped: A relationship with a cat can be difficult.There are serious trust issues to overcome, as well as different communication styles. Have you ever read the book, Dogs are from Mars, Cats are from Venus? I recommend you obtain a copy to understand the dynamics at play in more depth. It can be found in the Doggy Self-Help section of your local bookstore. ~ Ginger
