Zeus and Kodi don’t care what you think of their relationship. Just ask them.
That’s a lot of fur. You must have giant mutant intelligent dust bunnies by now.
I hope you are not one of those people who are promoting mixed marriages. You must be beaten with a bible if you are. <>
I can almost read their minds…
Kodi: Ugh he’s got the camera out AGAIN… bring me bacon dangit!
Zeus: You woke me from my nap for this? That couch looks like it could sharpen my claws quite nicely. Bring me tuna human!
My cat, George, and the dog, Sparky, are secretly in love. The cat wants no one to know about it and the dog doesn’t care who knows. Typical.
Argh…Adam, you beat me to ending that classic Ghostbusters quote!
It’s reigning cat and dog.
O Great Scalzi, what an excellent picture of TempCat Zeus slumming with the ungifted-in-the-species department, namely Anteater-Thing.
His charitable nature has clearly been improved by Her Shimmering Glorious Radiant Perfection.
However, it is clear that you have backslid in your photographic skills and require some coaching:
1. TempCat Zeus should be centered in the frame and should occupy most of it.
2. The Anteater-Thing should be implied, not actually seen.

Nice picture! It’s always lovely to see a wonderful dog guarding her family’s pets. I’ll bet anyone who threatens Zeus would get a laser beam up the nose.

But do you support their right to be armed?
Zeus: “Our relationship? Uh, let’s say a warm, fuzzy pillow is nice, whatever the species. And that dog squirms less than some cats I could name…”
Kodi: “Yeah, this cat is youngish and needs a responsible presence, y’know. Just like a puppy. Plus, I like cuddling.”
Both (shaking head): “Paparazzis, eh…”
I often catch Wink, my one-eyed cat, grooming my hound Chi, who just sits there and lets the cat lick all over her face and eyes and paws. Sometimes they see me watching, and stop quickly, as though embarrassed. As if I’d tell!
Zeus, Kodi, I was wondering whether you care what I think about your relationship. Any comment?
(I can’t believe nobody asked yet. I don’t think Scalzi is bluffing…but if he were, that is what I’d think, isn’t it?)
Sweet picture, but it makes me sad. My kitty used to secretly love snuggling with my dog. She’s been depressed and listless ever since he passed away. Not that she’d ever admit it. Typical cat.
With all the combined fur flying around your house you should consider finding someone that spins fur into yarn and knit sweaters and mittens and scarves.
There was something in the news recently that’s relevant to this, with a few more scientific details on cat/dog relationships:
I love seeing posts like this. My cat used to love to snuggle next to my Golden Retriever. When the cat was a kitten it even would suckle on him. :) It was funny.
