Intensity at the Window


Molly held her stare for five minutes when she saw the neighbor’s cat in the front yard.

Our neighbor’s cat walked on our front yard, sending Molly into a five-minute stare down from her spot at the living room window. She did not flinch once. Eventually the cat left. This is the same vantage point for Molly when she spots the mail truck, or a dog passing on leash. In these cases she barks until the mailman or the dog leave. But with the cat it is an old fashion stare-down.
