You elicited that age-old reaction: Awww...

It must have been a nightmare for metering. Meter for the dog and blow the cat away; meter for the cat and the dog goes into blackout.

(Isn't that the "bad" kitty who was recently trying to climb your tripod?)

Yes to the metering nightmare, and no, this is his sister the "calm one'

This remindes me of my childhood.

My mom is alergic to fur, so we didn't have any pets (well, ignoring the goldfish for a bit.) But a neighbor had several.. dogs, cats, & horses. They had an Irish Setter (Redsy) for well into 20 years. In her late teens they adopted two twin kittens (Frick and Frack) who were identical except for different color eyes. Lovely white cats with a small orange tiger pattern.

For some reason, Redsy took to those cats. She's carry them around like they were her puppies (lightly in her mouth), she'd sleep with them, they'd play with her. I can still clearly remember her lying on her side, legs out straight both kittens curled up asleep on her belly. Not between the legs, actually on her belly.

Ahh. Thanks for reminding me of that... and thanks for the nice picture.

And you, Eric, just reminded me of my family's dog who, when the cat had kittens, would wait until the cat was off taking a break from mothering and then would, one by one, "steal" all the kittens, carrying them gently in her mouth to her own special corner. The mother cat would return, find her kittens gone, go directly to the dog's corner, and calmly carry her babies back home one by one. Never a cross word between cat and dog.
