While looking for a new cattery I came across these

It looks like the cattery has a free dog to sleep on for every cat (or possibly the other way around!)

I'm always amazed how well cats and dogs, who've obviously been brought up with each other, get along.  You don't even say the C-word in front of my brothers dog, and my cats have not always been that comfortable in the vets waiting room, when a dog comes in!
Actually, it is rocket science.

Our local vet has an awfully sensible arrangement of a little annex to the main waiting area specifically for cats (and impromptu bike parking), allowing them to be kept well out of sight of any dogs that may come in.

While cats can get a bit political with each other across a vet's waiting room, they can be seriously terrified of overly inquisitive or barky dogs, which is the last thing they need if they're ill.  Can't say I blame them really - random dogs make me nervous, and I'm at least ten times the size of a typical cat and understand how leads and cages work.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Some of those are hilarious as well as squeee worthy. I thought this one should be titled In flagrante delicto.

Exactly what I was just going to say! ;D

Yes, the dog does look like he (she?) is particularly embarrassed!

This one is incredibly cute, since I assume that's Mum looking on.

Squeeeeeeee, indeed, but with dark eyes and noses, are they albino, or just 'white'?

Have we had baby hedgehogs yet?

Coming back to base on Friday, we found a small hedgehog pottering about on the tarmac at the reserve entrance, watched with fascination by three lads who'd just come out of the Mosque. I steered the truck away from it, and suggested to my workmate that she get out and see if it looked alright, knowing that a hedgehog out in daylight is not usually a good sign.

She did this, but pointed out that as she'd never seen one alive before, she wasn't sure what to look for!

When she closed the truck door, it jumped, so we reckoned its reflexes were ok, and she scooped it up and placed it in some more friendly undergrowth out of harm's way. The lads remained fascinated, so I guess they'd never seen one either!

The St Tiggywinkles site may have some information on this.

My parents have occasionally had to take hedgehogs to the local vets, when they've got caught up in their strawberry netting.  I have managed to cuts some out in the past, but if they get really tied up, and then curl into a protective ball, the only solution is to take them to the vets, who can knock them out with some anaesthetic, so they can be untangled.  They also get the benefit that this process kills the numerous parasites which they've inevitably got, so they'll be a lot healthier for a while. :thumbsup:

I've just clicked this, and it'sobviously been updated from when the rest of you were looking at cute cat/dog snuggles...

I'm not sure whether the latest post on that blog is super squee or just batshit crazy!

Sam, has it crossed your mind that at least three of those kittens might be a bit hard of thinking?  ;D Especially the tabbyish one who spends the first minute fighting with nothing at all...

We've all had imaginary friends before.


Those hedgehogs are very cute, are they yours?

I'm always amazed by how much big cats can behave like their domesticated distant relatives, which I guess tells us how relatively little they've changed in the process of becoming household pets.

That first shot is great, with the nearer young Cheetahs closing their eyes as mum drenches them again!
