Hawk & Blizzard

Blizzard our Siamese cat enjoyed a day in the sun.
Blizzard wears a harness and leash because we have lost too many beloved cats to predators, and we also do not like our cats to eat the many wild birds we feed.
Blizzard enjoyed chasing bugs & butterflies, bees and ...
...ducks!
But the most fun of all was stalking, attacking, and wrestling our dog Hawk, a willing participant in their never-ending games, most often played indoors on Hawk's pillow in front of the t.v.
O.K. Rest time in the shade, the games will continue later on tonight,indoors.
Blizzard keeps watch on Hawk, and stalks him all day, attacks Hawk whenever he can grab him, and when the two of them are exhausted, they fall asleep together on Hawk's pillow. I think they are pretty evenly matched, but most often Blizzard shows himself the winner of their friendly wrestling matches.I think Hawk allows this because he loves having a furry companion to cuddle and claim as his own. Whatever brings them together and binds their friendship, they are fun to watch !

That's pretty funny! It is wonderful to see animals work out their own relationships when they get along well. What a good idea to use a leash. I used to like cats before we had to put up with neighbor's loose ones spraying our porches, killing our song birds and bunnies and keeping us awake yowling at night. But they can be very entertaining to watch! Have a good week!

We miss our Siamese cats! We just had to have our beloved Siamese cat that we got from some friends at our old church to sleep last month. We let our cats roam around our property though but we do have some in different buildings though.

Animal companionship - just like human friends - sometimes the oddest combinations make for the most fun and comfort!

Sounds like this would make a good story, something James Herriot would write about. I think I mentioned to you once that your animal stories would make a good book.

This is such a sweet post, Kathy. I think some people could learn a great deal about friendship by watching animals.
