Kittens: Fun With Water

When my cats were kittens and outdoors for the first summer, they were fascinated with water.  If it rained they would play in a puddle. When I had the garden hose out I sprayed the pavement and they would follow the water as it traveled along.  

They’re indoors and older, but they still have a fondness for water.  Many times I’ll find them looking in the tub or standing in the doorway when I turn on the shower.  

It was fun watching them that summer and seeing how excited and curious they could be over puddles of water.

A Stray Cat and A Dog:An Unexpected Friendship

Years ago when I had my dog Lady, a stray cat came along and was determined to make friends with her.

I fed the cat at the front of the house and even let her sleep in the garage.  Every time the dog was out back, the cat would come to the gate and sit while Lady went absolutely crazy, jumping and barking at her.

This went on for several weeks, until one day I found the cat in the backyard with the dog, face to face.  Lady was wagging her tail and was so happy.  The cat that I named Miss Mew just walked around the dog as if she’d always been here.

If the dog got too excited, Miss Mew would tap her on the nose with her paw, without bringing out the claws. They loved spending time outdoors and even enjoyed meals together.

Miss Mew wanted to go outdoors whenever Lady did.  She let me put a leash on her and acted like she’d always used one.

The two enjoyed relaxing indoors together too.

They had many years together, then one day Lady passed away and Miss Mew missed her dog.   My cat Tigger had not spent much time with Miss Mew, but they gradually became closer and a wonderful friendship began.

That’s a story for another day.
