I continue to be amazed at how well Belle, who just joined the family on January 3, and Moses, reigning queen cat, who just happens to be about 19-20 years old, are getting along.
To understand the degree of my incredulity, you need a little bit of history.
In the foreground of the above shot is Champ, a pit bull, who would literally have to be carried into our house due to his fear of Moses. Even well after he became a big, fearsome-looking adult dog.
Can’t you just hear her thinking, “Move, buddy, and I’ll kill you”?
In the past, if a dog was in its bed and Moses climbed in, said dog would rise carefully, so as not to disturb the queen, and slink off to lay on some cold, hard space.
Now, for whatever reason, Moses is actually willing to SHARE the dog bed. Maybe it’s the warm, fluffy blankie Belle came equipped with?
Moses and Belle seem to have become buddies. This despite the fact that Belle chases Moses and Muffin whenever an opportunity presents itself.
