Tuckers New Toy

Our cat is very shy. It takes him WEEKS to warm to a stranger.

This evening our friend Anne came over and brought her miniature toy poodle "Captain Morgan". Yes, that's the infamous Captain Morgan of Rum bottle fame.

Morgan immediately went looking for entertainment and found our kitten "Tucker". Tucker backed up in a defensive stance, hissed, slapped, and looked generally annoyed.

After Morgan gave up trying to make friends he turned his attention back to us and followed us out of the room. Guess who came out after him?

We spent the next two hours watching the dog chase the cat, the cat chase the dog, and a dozen other comical combinations that we could never seem to catch on film. This photo is the best we could do but it in no way captures the genuine friendship that has erupted from this strange encounter.
Tucker has already asked for another 'play date' - just as soon as he recovers from this one...
