My old cat used to do that with my dog (both now departed). The dog would be laying on a chair, and the cat would get on top of him and walk around in a circle, making a comfortable place to lay down. The dog would look at the cat out of the corner of his eye, then eventually get up and lay somewhere else. The cat would then take its place on the chair, triumphant and revelling in its bloodless victory. :haha:

This is Molly. Female staffie cross, 3-5 years old, had a litter but neutered. Currently in a shelter in Glasgow.

Molly is going to be Milo's new room-mate in a week or so.

No. That's the 'look, there's someone over there with food. They're my best friend ever, give me food, give me food, go on, I like you, give me food, oh you've eaten it, I'm bored of you now' look :idiot:

No that is her "Is that thing food? You're pointing it at me, and talking to me, and putting your eye up to it, then staring at the back of it, then doing it all again. It all seems terribly important, but you're missing the most important point: can I eat it?" look.

No, dear. It's a camera. Get used to it: Mrs. H. has many cameras and many lenses, and you will be a well-photographed dog before your time is through.

If Molly gets her own 'Facebook' page and I add her as friend I'll have more dog friends than human friends...people will start thinking I'm weird.

Fixed that for you.

That is a lovely pic but I have sad news...

RIP Jerry the hamster, who passed away yesterday.

He was more Gerriatric than Jerry towards the end, but we will miss the little fellar.

We move on to Guinea Pigs next.

Sorry to hear that Bart. RIP, Jerry.

Good luck with the Guinea pigs. I recommend names like "Fang" and "Killer".

RIP, Jerry. May you find a nice spot at the Hamster Chow Volcano.

My niece had a Guinea Pig named "Fat Boy" whose hobby was sitting calmly wherever he was parked, waiting for food to magically appear. I think this was the same one who once took the Barbie van for a spin, but that is another story...
