The Baby Sitter




When I was growing up, we had a puppy and kitten that we got at the same time and raised together. The dog was Heathcliffe, and he was huge. The cat was Miss Pettibone, and she was tiny. When she had kittens, he used to babysit with them.

And I was impressed with that! Ha. This is really impressive.

That's very sweet. I wondered where their mama was.

We had a dog and cat raised together, who used to curl up together and sleep in front of our fireplace.

Pretty amazing! Seems like the hen keeps trying to sit on them but can't figure out how to get on all of them at once.

If you didn't see the picture, you might not believe it was true! Apparently if they are raised together they will not see each other as predator/prey. Here is another incredible combo: tigers and pigs! http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_tiger_and_piglets.htm
