As many of you know, we are over run with animals, quite a few of them cats. We also are blessed with a wonderful dog.
This story is about the unlikely relationship between one of our cats and that big ole dog. The dog is Labrador retriever with some mastiff in him. This combination gives him a fairly formidable size.
Our first litter of kittens produced an unusually placid little fellow. He is such a lovable tomcat. He made us all fall in love in with him. People aren’t the only things he woos.
We first noticed this relationship during feeding time one weekend. The cats are fed and then the dog receives his feed thirty feet away, inside his run. After the cats polish off their meal, and not a single morsel remains in the bowl, this little guy drops in on the dog and sneaks pieces out of his bowl. The significant piece of this picture is he does it under the dog’s nose, as he watches the cat eat out of his bowl.
The dog’s name is Flash. The cat is called CJ. They have a special relationship.
Flash takes every opportunity to show his affection for his special friend. The other day presented a perfect opportunity to capture it for all time. Unfortunately the dog is black, the cat is black, the furniture is black and the concrete is gray. Pretty drab background for picture taking unfortunately, but here they are.
This may appear brutal, but it is only done with affection.
Then, of course, this pictures speaks a thousand words.
This cat rubs up next to this dog as if he were a person. I have never in my life witnessed anything like this. Unbelievable.
As evidenced by that pink tongue, this is totally affectionate between both of them.
CJ is in heaven. Can you read the satisfaction on his face. Flash is just so happy to have a friend to talk to… or lick.
It is a relationship made in heaven. The giant black dog is enthralled with the black cat. And that silly cat uses Flash as a rubbing post.
Just had to share this little piece of my heaven. I hope you enjoy it. If you have anything wonderful in your heaven, I’d love to hear about it.
