Cat owners around the world are sharing their cat-stealing stories on social media, with one cat owner claiming she kicked a dog that was kicking her litter box in a city park.
The owner posted on Facebook that she and her dog, a Maltese, were walking their dog in the city park in New York City’s Lower East Side.
She said the dog, who is a female, was “a little bit upset” and began kicking the litter box.
“She kicked me in the back of the head,” the owner wrote.
“The dog kicked in the other direction and I kicked in front of her, but she didn’t get the box.”
The owner said she was able to take a few photos of the dog and posted them on Facebook, adding that she had been kicking the box since March and that it was still in good shape.
The dog owner, who asked not to be named, said she kicked the box about three times, the first time the dog was “very excited,” before the second kick.
She said the third kick was more forceful, and the dog began to fall over.
“The dog was still kicking, and then it was kind of a big surprise,” the cat owner said.
“It felt like I was kicking a brick wall.”
The cat owner also said she had no idea what had happened to the litter boxes.
She told NBC 4 New York that she would like to hear from the police and the city to find out what had taken place.
She also said that she believed the dog had kicked the litterbox herself, but the owner told NBC that the dog has not been seen since March.
The city has since released a statement saying that “a number of police officers” have been on the scene and that a cat had been removed from the park.
“We were unable to determine what was in the box,” the city said in the statement.
“We also want to emphasize that this is a private park and we will be providing additional information as it becomes available.”
“We are still looking for this dog, and we are cooperating fully with authorities,” the statement said.
