    Default Louie and Bubba.... a strange friendship

    Louie is a cat that wandered up to my daughter's doorstep 3 weeks ago. He was matted, so skinny she felt his ribs through all that fur. She took him in, fed him, bathed him and he patiently let her cut and comb the mats out of his fur.

    Now comes Bubba the pet rat. They are pals!!! I don't know how she does this but she is able to get animals to be friends.

    She has been this way since she was little, getting her cats and dogs to all get along.
    When she was younger she had rabbits, chickens, turtles, snakes, hamsters, mice, dogs, cats, birds, lizards, fish and a pet pig. Some animals we naturally kept apart and she understood. She knew a snake and a bunny just weren't going to be pals....lol and some cats refuse to be friends with mice or rats they would rather eat them them have them as friends..it's just how cats are.
    We had a Great Dane who loved to stand over our smaller dog and put its head in it's mouth. It was quite comical to see the poor dog with drool all over him. And happy as can be.....LOL

    My mom used to say that we don't pick our pets, they pick us. Your daughter has a special touch/heart and the animals know it and trust her!

    She sure sounds special. Very cute pic. I have a Chihuahua, my avatar, who can't be taught to not jump on other little dogs or cats. I do not have the touch your Daughter has.

    God did not tell domestic animals that they are supposed to be enemys. Just to play together and be friends
