Butters Loves Woody

I mentioned Butters the Psycho cat in a recent post. What I failed to mention is that he was a feral cat that nobody could get close to. He was adopted from a cat rescue by the neighbors about three years ago. Their other cat, Taco, is also feral and she was adopted about six years ago. Both cats have grown to love Woody the dog, but Butters ADORES Woody and won't let him out of his sight. He follows him everywhere, takes naps with him, grooms him, plays with him and even lets Woody eat some of his kibble.

Butters used to stay far, far away and only eat his food after it was left for him and the person feeding him was long gone. Little by little he grew to trust people enough to be nearby while they fed him. Now, if people he knows are careful and don't scare him, he will let them pet him a little. He has taken a liking to the lady and lets her pet him a lot and even brush him. But it is Woody he worships, and Woody seems to like Butters a lot.

I don't know. Sounds like a lot of hooey to me...dogs and cats as buddies? Sheesh. What is the world coming to?

Look how Butters' tail is wrapped around Woody's shoulder.

Woody looks like he is hoping that word about this doesn't get out.

Almost a full 'tocks shot.

Aww, it seems sweet to us. Our Princeton and Chi-Chi are the best of furriends, too.

Hi! Thanks for the visit to my blog today, I'm glad to come find your blog-home. I'll be back too!

I love hearing about a feral who's made it big! Every kitty deserves to have friends, even the ferals. Sweet story about Butters! I love watching my ferals be all friendly and sweet with each other, they are all best buds with each other.

Hi there, Mr. Black! Even though I personally think being friends with a dog is pretty weird for a cat, at least he didn't latch on to a Kardashian or something.
