A few weeks ago, I found myself with a cat that had a few new friends.
I was excited to find the two new pets living in the house and were ready to take him for a walk with me.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t expecting much from the cat.
He didn’t seem to care about anyone else, or if there was anyone around, he didn’t show any interest in them.
But as the week went on, I noticed his affection for one of the dogs in the household, a white lab named Choo.
I was in awe when he greeted me in English bulldog form, hugged me, and called out to me from the front porch.
Then I watched him take a few steps back and take a step closer to the dog.
I wasn.t sure if it was a cat or a dog.
After all, I’m used to seeing dogs with cats.
But I was shocked to see a black lab in English.
I didn’t have a clue what the cat was doing, but I knew I wanted to get close to it.
It was only a few minutes into our walk when the cat jumped on my leg.
The dog immediately rushed to chomp down on my legs, but the cat took a step back to avoid him.
Choo quickly got up and took a bite out of my leg as well.
Now, I’ve seen lots of pictures of cats that have dogs that seem to be more comfortable around their owners.
But this is different.
The cat was completely unaware of me.
But the dog was.
I had just met Choo and I was so happy to have a new friend.
He was a dog with a human being in it.
So, when Choo took a leap and bit me, I knew this was going to be special.
When I saw the cat jump, I jumped too.
As I did, Choo jumped up and I jumped on his back.
And I wasn!t done yet.
I immediately started licking his face.
He didn’t even bother to bite me, but he did lick me.
And I licked his face for two minutes straight, with my mouth and tongue touching his face at every touch.
After the licking, I took a few quick steps back to get away from Choo, and I kept going.
Eventually, Choot and I were in a quiet room with a window.
I noticed that Choo was holding onto my leg with both paws.
I tried to hold onto him with both hands.
But Choo didn’t want to give up.
So, I reached down and grabbed his head with both of my hands.
I held Choo down with one hand and I leaned my head back and pulled Choo into my lap.
Choot was panting a bit and was struggling to breath.
Finally, I put my arm around Choo’s neck and started licking him.
I took another step back.
Then I turned to look at Choo with both eyes and I could see him breathing heavily.
Choo didn?t look happy at all.
I asked him, “Is that because you are hungry?”
I said, “No, I just got so excited to have Choo,” and he didn?ve a very human face and a human face for a cat.
“I have a question for you,” I said.
“Why is he still so scared of me?”
Choot just shook his head.
He asked, “Why do you keep bringing Choo to me when you can just take Choo anywhere you want?”
“Choo is scared of you because he doesn?t know what to do when he sees you,” he continued.
Later, I told Choo that he had to learn to understand why I was scared of him.
While it was important to learn from the experience and not let fear control you, I wanted him to know that I wanted Choo in my life and that I love him for who he is.
I have a dog that loves me.
He has no problem putting me in danger to get what I want, but that?s how it should be.
We went on to talk about what Choo would do when I got tired of being there.
For a moment, he looked me straight in the eyes and he looked at me like I was insane.
Then he said, “Now, Choos job is to be a companion for me.”
“Well, he knows what he is,” I laughed.
“But he knows how to do it, too.”
We shared a laugh about how we wanted Choos future to be just like mine.
Choos future is to have two dogs, but it will be a happy future.
Our dogs are a combination of
