Unlikely Friends

Up until last fall, we had two pets.

One dog. One cat.




And any number of other creatures would occasionally drop by.

In October, Puss had kittens.

Hours old.

One week Old.

We had planned on keeping two kittens from the litter.

Claws McPurr



Six months later, we still have three.

Claws, Carley & Smudge in the back.

Their favourite chair.

And Mama is still with us of course.

Sigh. I've officially become The Cat Lady.

Although they were behind closed doors, in the laundry room for the first few weeks, Belle would occasionally go in to sniff around and see what all the fuss was about :-)

The kittens have grown up, knowing Belle as simply part of the family.

Smudge and Carley still keep their distance from her, unless they feel like playing.

But Claws ...

Yeah. Not so much.

At first, he wasn't sure what to make of Belle.

'I think you missed a spot, right there.'

'MOOOOOMMMM! This big dog is in my personal SPACE again!'

But now ...

Awwww the best of friends!

'No ... really ... trust me'

OK. So we're still working on the 'No Belle, we don't EAT Claws McPurr!' thing ...
