Chevy Almost Died Last Night
He thought this was great! So he immediately ran away from me and towards the sidewalk/street. Mind you, this is Gilbert Street in Iowa City, which is normally busy. But it's 5:00 PM so it's extra busy.
Nero and I followed Chevy trying to get him to come back and/or stop walking while not chasing him so that he would be more likely to run away. It didn't work. He ran down the sidewalk and then turned suddenly onto Gilbert Street in front of a bus!
Fortunately the bus stopped. But I must've looked crazy with my arms in the air and screaming "NO!!" The bus spooked Chevy and he ran back to the sidewalk instead of further into the road (fortunately). I scooped him up and proceeded to de-stress for the next fifteen minutes.
