Photo: You can come out now

Black and White Sunday

Dog and cat share a moment...from Life with Dogs and Cats.

You okay?

Maybe the UPS guy stopped by with a delivery, causing three dogs to deliver the appropriate amount of Very Loud Barkage.

Perhaps the Dreaded Vacuum Monster had left its dark closet cave and was terrorizing the inhabitants of the house.

Or one of the kittens thought it was time to play Chase the Cat, and Dawn was not in the mood for annoying games.

Whatever caused Dawn to hide under the china cabinet, she had been there long enough and was trying to determine whether the coast was clear.

Jasper, who can sometimes be incredibly obtuse when it comes to reading cat body language, could sense Dawn’s hesitation. My big dog with an even bigger heart leaned in. You can just about hear the soft whisper, “It’s okay. You can come out now.”

Life with dogs and cats: endless entertainment, infinite love.

How do your pets get along with each other–or with other pet friends? What are some moments of warmth and friendship that stick with you?

    Jack and Maggie don’t interact too often, they are both kind of loners although Maggie would like to interact more I think. When we were at Big Bear and Maggie was a little stressed, Jack let her rest her head on his butt while we were lying on the deck. Usually he gets right up when she touches him (girl cooties you know) but this time he let her. It was sweet.

    • Sometimes I find my dogs behave similarly toward each other. Tucker would love to snuggle with the other two, but Jasper in particular doesn’t want Tucker in his space. If Tucker gets too close, Jasper will get up and walk away. Lilah doesn’t mind, though, and I often find Tucker using LIlah as a pillow to rest his head.

    That is so adorably precious. Too few of us get along well enough to provide moments like that unless it is Mauricio and Astrid or Fiona and Giulietta. Mom wanted to tell you how much she admires your writing. We just returned from voting for you again today. Purrlease join us Monday for our 2nd anniversary giveaway. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  4. That’s so sweet! We don’t get along with each other that well, and we’re all the same species!

  5. Mr. N is the only pet and quite happy with that status. He loves Sage though. And the two of them will wrestle and play chase. On their first meeting, Sage got a vine stuck in her fur and Mr. N tried to pull it out.

  6. That is such a sweet photo! The kitties ears folded back just melted my heart!

    So sweet! At MyDogLikes we dogs and cats sometimes act indifferent to one another, that is until somebody needs some extra TLC!!

  8. What a sweet picture!!! I love capturing sweet moments like this 🙂

  9. That’s a sweet picture. We run and hide when someone comes to the door. But we rarely go and check on each other to see if we’re okay.

  10. Emma says:

    So cute. We get along pretty well with the cats, but cat bro Bert thinks he is a dog, so we treat him like one sometimes which makes him mad. No one gets harmed, just some rough housing fun.

    Great photo! Cats and dogs can be friends. Century, one of our cats, loved Damien. We would often find the two of them napping together on Damien’s dog bed.

  12. Dogs N Pawz says:

    Awwwwe…that is so sweet!

  13. Rebekah says:

    This is so sweet.

  14. That’s so sweet! Two out of three kitties over here think maybe woofies themselves would cause us to hide, even though we know they probably mean us no harm. But Allie isn’t afraid! 🙂

  15. Awe!! That is so sweet! <3

    So sweet! Pierson tends to comfort Maya, but not the other way around.
