Oreo's new nemesis

Yesterday, we noticed a fluffy orange cat prowling around our yard. Oreo was pretty interested in meeting him, so we let him go out. The weirdest thing happened: both cats walked over to each other, sniffed the other one's face, and then laid down on the ground facing each other. After about 5 minutes, the orange cat started making small meowing noises, and then without warning, pounced on Oreo.

Chris jumped in between them to scare off the orange cat, and Oreo was pretty upset about the whole situation. So he went to hide under my car, and the orange cat decided to test his boundaries by sitting in front of the car. So once again they stared at each other for about five minutes. Eventually, we got bored and chased the other cat off so we could get Oreo back in the house. So still no friends for Oreo, but at least he got a little excitement.
