The dance

When we introduced Bailey into our life, we were a bit concerned about how our 9 lb Demon Dog would get along with this who knows how many pound cat (20? 30?)… I just know when I pick him up, he is heavy!
The two warily dance around each other, usually keeping a bush or something between the two of them.  I don’t believe there is any chance they will be best of buds, but they have learned to respect each other.  Wouldn’t it be nice if the human race could learn to do the same?

Bailey made himself right at home.  He sleeps on his own personal cushion on my rocking chair.  Now that Spring is finally here, he has even learned to share that chair with me when I take time to front porch sit.  We love Bailey.

We wanted a big ol’ tom cat that would lay around on the porch and do a little hunting in his spare time - and that is what we got.  He is perfect in every way.

And Whiskey?  He is doing fine.  He cautiously sniffs the air before he heads out to do his thing.  Don’t you just love the tough guy stance he takes?  Yep.  We love our Demon Dog too.

I noticed you changed your header, Deanna, Bailey's picture is cute! Wouldn't it be neat down the line if there was a picture of all your critters together?

glad that they are getting along somewhat okay and that Bailey has proved to be a great addition to your family!

Yep... Shame the human race can't do the same thing! *Sigh*


I'm glad Bailey has settled in nicely, and that Whisky and Bailey are - though far from best pals - getting along, and not fighting!

Oh my goodness...I loved these pics. :)

Looks like you have a very smart cat in Bailey. I think Whiskey is smart too...for keeping something between he and Bailey. LOL

I had to laugh when I read about Whiskey's "tough guy stance". LOL

Thanks for the pics. By the way, I love your header, too. :)

We have a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix -- who is smaller than out Very Large Cat Eddie. William walks very softly around Big Ed.

I had a couple of chihuahuas when I was a kid. They do not necessarily realize they are small--hehe!

Great pictures! I'm glad they are not fighting. :)

Bailey is a Big Beautiful Boy Cat! Glad he has a home with you Deanna :)

Intense Guy said...

That's a big cat!! You and Rita could have a play date and put Bailey and Karma on the swing set.

:)

I love that last shot of oh-so-confident Whiskey... He knows who's the top of the "peckin' order" even if Bailey doesn't!

Oh he's absolutely beautiful! We took our furbabies to the vet. Katy lost about a pound (YAY!) and Dharma gained it (up to 15 pounds now). I have no clue how she managed it with the food on one level and the potty on the other...
