"I love you man"



Ahhh. Isn’t this just about the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen. Not to pawn my prejudiced opinion off on you, but really. A cat grooming a dog. Doesn’t happen everyday.

This is Murphy and Vinny….the early days. Vinny came to live with us as a wee kitten when Murph was about a year old. Even with the difference in size, they became very good friends. I have some video of them wrestling that is amazingly entertaining. Vinny pouncing around like a baby roo and Murph in the downward dog pose egging him on.

Everyone can use a smile to start the week , so I offer them up as my contribution to Mellow Yellow Monday.

Murph is part golden and I refer to Vin as a yellow tabby, though I suppose he’s more orange. He does have vibrant yellow eyes, however. I think that puts the color requirement in order.

The boys lived in wonderful, playful harmony for almost a year. Then a young jezebel Calico named Lola came to live with us. She caught Vinny’s fancy and the bromance went to the back burner.

Now it’s the female feline that gets the grooming, the mischievous romping and all the love. Can’t say that I blame Vin though. As you can see, Lola Palooza, with her moon pie face, is quite a beauty.

Cute memories and photos.

Dogs and cats do very well if trained. None of our dogs bothered the cats and one dog protects the cat from imaginary enemies. This is way better than watching tv.

Do you have one of a mouse sleeping beside the cat, too? Impressive!

Okay - now that is ADORABLE! Even more so when I clicked on it for a larger look. The look in Murphy's eyes ... awwwwwww...that is love.

I love this pic, especially the x golden, I am more a doggy person you see. We have a very friendly ginger that visits us at the moment but my border collie and jack russel are so rude to him that I fear he is going to stop popping in.

Cute!
My Mother's name was Lola. She loved cats. The last cat she had was a great big ginger tom named "Boy"

Well nothing lasts forever. At least they shared some special moments. In all the years our cat and dog were together they basically never even touched one another except to the dogs sniffing the cat's butt every time he came in the door. Maybe that would explain it.
Adorable picture.

There's just nothing more adorable than cute animals cuddling up or romping with other cute animals of a different species. Or the same species, I don't mind. :) They make me all mushy.
