"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.
