As close as it gets

When we first got Fudge I imagined no shortage of cute photo opportunities of my two
golden boys snuggled up together. The only problem was I forgot that Toffee is not
a cuddly sort of cat. He doesn't jump up on our laps and only dishes out affection
on his own terms.
Although he can put Fudge in his place with a swift swipe of his paw, he keeps
his distance as he doesn't like being jumped upon, pinned down, sniffed and licked.
It's only when Fudge is tired after an energetic game of 'fetch' that he will venture
close and even then it's not too close.

He may keep his distance but this makes a great shot!

Toffee looks curious, yet cautious. Fudge is cooperating too. Great catch of this rare and very special moment.

LOL, good to see Toffee's keeping a respectful distance :o) I'm sure one of Fudge's paws could give him a bit of a nasty blow if it caught him unawares!!

A familiar scene here too, with Murphy and Puddin! Cute shot of these two.

Keeping a respectful distance is wise as Fudge has learned by now!

they seem to have reached a sort of detente, more tolerant than affectionate...there's a colour harmony too..

The better part of valor is discretion! Cute shot!

Mutual respect is the best you can hope for.

The correct cautious relationship between a cat and dog. :) A terrific photo. V

A proper cat and a sensible dog

Sweet! They do look like they get on well together. I guess the sweetie connection in the names is no accident.
Colin Storey09-Sep-2011 20:49
Very cute, I am sure they are the best of friends and have a great time together when you are not looking.

Lovely catch - I'm sure they like each other really.
