Meghan Hibbs said she was on Barton Avenue watching the house and two dogs for her in-laws.
The dogs somehow got out.
One came back, but she had to go looking for the other. The trail led to Mississippi Avenue where she came face to face with an angry couple on the sidewalk. They said her dog had tried to eat their cat, and the cat was on the porch dying.
The woman was "very hateful and cursing."
Ms. Hibbs said she was afraid for her safety after the woman copied down her tag number.
