Last time here on DA were a lot of gorgeous shots of Huskys. That reminded me on a very special time in my life:
I work for a a cat-aid organisation. This organisation has a cat shelter but it also have families who care for abandoned or motherless kitten. Here they can raise in family atmosphere to become social and beloved cats. I was called for a shooting on such family and what I could see there was gorgeous: At this family kitten were raised with a Husky-pride. It were around 8 dogs and some kitten. Every dog loves the kitten to death and took care of them. You really have to be careful not to grab at the kitten too fast
That was so heart-warming and heart melting and fascinating. A very special moment in my life, cause I usually have a soft spot for cats but at that moment I got a spot for Huskys as well. Very special dogs...
Interesting to see was, that the kitten raise bilingual which means that they were able to communicate with dogs and cats. They behave a lot like dogs (flutter their tail when they were happy for example). So every kitten was able to go to a family with dogs (only if the dog dies not see a cat as prey of course) without any problems. So I think we as humans can learn a lot of them cause I think a lot of problems we have is a problem of bad communication as well and I think if even cats and dogs can be friends, it should be possible for us too
