Cat raises puppy!


This is a cat in an animal shelter in NJ. That little guy snuggled up next to her is a puppy. The puppy was brought in without its mother. So the ingenius people at the shelter gave the little pup to the cat to see what happened.
I'm still not writing. Just can't wrap my head around anything right now. But I am painting so thats something.
I'll be unemployed two weeks from today. I wasn't worried about that before but now...
I've been at this job for ten years...TEN YEARS! That's the longest I've ever stayed in one place. It was a crazy, interesting and incredibly stressful job. But never boring! (I need things to stay interesting. Too boring and I bail.) So, unemployment here I come.
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road....
The cat adopted the pup and nursed him for a few weeks until he moved to solid food. She was a good mama all around.

I have three dogs already, Yikes!
Its like moving a herd out the door every morning.
I'm sure puppy will find a great home. Everyone is facinated with cat-dog.

awww that's sweet about the puppy and cat. I hope things work out for you with the job. And painting is something. It keeps that creative part of your brain flowing. Things could be percolating right now, waiting to be written.

I can only hope! Perhaps there's something great beneath all this paint.

My cat did that. She had kittens when my brother got a puppy who was six weeks old. He just nosed his way in between the kittens and nursed right along with them. A year or so later a pack of dogs went to attack the cat and our dog attacked them and ran them off.

She also adopted a kitten that wasn't hers which is unusual for a cat.

Awww, the dog was protecting his mama.
Sometimes nature is truly amazing.
