Peace Among the Species

Posted in Uncategorized tagged ocadia at 3:53 pm by Karma

Adelaide has been in the family since March 19th, a little over 3 weeks.  She has settled in great.  My only irritation has been her persistent bothering and chasing of the two cats in the family.  Slowly, day after day, it is getting better.  I dream of the day when I find a cat curled up next to Adelaide.  Some of you may think that is a naive goal ;).  However,….. drum roll please….. last night, this crazy dog  

and this silly cat



laid down on the bed one foot away from each other.

Mathilde actually jumped up on the bed and laid down in the vicinity of Adelaide.  Adelaide got up and even sniffed her with no excitement or aggression and Mathilde didn’t hiss back.  So Adelaide laid down too.  For a while, Adelaide had laid her head down on her paw and Mathilde’s tail kept swishing over Addy’s nose!  I watched them for a while making sure havic did not ensue.  And THAT is the way we all fell asleep last night!!  😀

    Your pictures are always such a delight to view along with the cite storyline.

    Having had the privilege of being owned by a husky for over thirteen years…all I can say is good luck with the cat!! Actually, it really does look like they are starting to tolerate each other and that’s a huge success! Usually the cat wins them over (sometimes with a little batting at the dog’s leg when no one is looking? If Adedaile start being afraid, you’ll know what happened!!

    Just saw your photos on taking dog to work day….don’t know how I missed them…they are adorable!!

    My Siberian stayed “puppy” well into his senior years….enjoy the journey! Lucky, luck dog to be in your family.

    Roxy has lived with a few cats and is really funny around them at first. She is either running after them or running away from them. But after awhile, they get used to each other and I’d occasionally catch them laying on the same couch or bed. Such a warm feeling when you can catch them in that moment!

    Adelaide & Mathilde are perfect diplomats! Maybe we should send them to N Korea!

    Are huskies prey-driven? I’m totally curious.

    It looks like they’ll be chillin on the couch eventually.

      Extremely prey driven. Part of the nature of their breed is to run down small animals.
