Under each other's spell...

When Saul the donkey first arrived, he chased the cats quite a bit. I did NOT encourage the cats to go near him. I was having visions of cats flying through the air after a swift boot from a donkey! 

But Emerson in particular was undaunted. I'm pretty sure he's been visiting the donkey behind my back, because today I caught them up to this...



I think they like each other...










When Emerson was done loving up his friend Saul, he went to hang out under the stock tank...


The love that dare not speak its name!

PS: Saul's hooves are overdue for trimming. Now that he's settled in, my farrier has agreed to do his feet, but we have to coordinate with the vet because he'll need sedation. I'm hoping that over time, we can get him used to having his feet handled so that he no longer needs sedation for hoof trims.

  3. Hard to pick a favorite in your herd of cats, but Emerson has always been right up there for me. This just made him even cuter!

  9. These little critters sometimes have some odd relationships. I'm wondering if the rest of the cats take to Saul of if Saul takes to the rest of the cats.?

  13. Awww...isn't that something. I would never have thought that a donkey and a cat could be so friendly. Emerson apparently has no fear!

  18. Ooooh, that gives me the warm fuzzies! Maybe Emerson could talk to Saul about the hoof trim and calm him down. (Although the idea of a pedicure sends me running for tranquillisers myself.)
