From the photographer:
“A dog tried to stare down a little cat on about west 33rd street and boardwalk this morning [Ed. — last month]. The cat would have none of it and stood his ground. I wasn’t about to get in the way of it, I was poised to press the 911 button if things got serious. After about two minutes, the dog realized he couldn’t intimidate the little cat and, with the owner’s prodding, walked away. Trouble was averted.
