Three weeks ago we brought home a 6 week old kitten, Lexi (aka Demon Spawn). Her momma was a stray and she and her siblings had been found living under a rock pile, so the person collected up the four of them and took them to be adopted out. Naturally, the dogs were all SUPER excited to have her, and she was much less enthused about them. After about a week she started warming up to them, and now that she's adjusted and is a bit older (and more obnoxious), she and Finley are nearly inseparable. They had a good round of rough housing on the couch this afternoon so I grabbed the camera.
Oh he's very careful with her, super gentle. The photos look bad but it was all show lol. He knows about those claws....about a week ago she batted him in the face and got a claw stuck in his eyelid. I had to unhook it myself to free him. He didn't make a sound but it bled pretty good for a couple minutes.
Ha! I know right, isn't he so big and tough? Lol. He's never allowed around her unsupervised of course, but he's so good with her. She pounces on him and goes for his throat and he just rolls over and lets her go nuts, and is super careful to be gentle and not bite hard when he gets her back. I wasn't sure he would be at first, because he's pretty rough with everything else, but looks like he has a softer side after all
