On our early morning walk one weekend, Rambo and I happened across a strange sight - a tiny kitten trotting along behind a Labrador and his walker - in a high traffic street. I immediately reigned in my 70 pound lab who had never before encountered a live cat. The kitten was undaunted and simply arched her back and proceeded on tip toes to increase her size. Rambo was smitten by this < 1 lb creature with 100 lbs of guts. Knowing that the area, apart from the traffic, has a number of stray dogs, I could do naught but oblige Rambo and bring Kitty home. She immediately settled in with Rambo (himself rescued at a near-death state) and Zuma (a recently adopted stray puppy who was suffering from Rickets and Distemper) on my terrace. Kitty initially missed her mommy and Zuma had to grow up quickly to play mom. Now Rambo shares suckling duties. I love going upstairs and watching the three at their antics. It is heartwarming to see that Rambo allows the much smaller Zuma to play rough with him and, similarly, Kitty is quite wicked when playing with Zuma. The stronger often takes a beating at play but does not hurt the weaker!
And Kitty is of the view that dogs aren’t exactly hot on personal hygiene and works hard and grooming them, whether they like it or not. Here is Kitty, contemplating the cleanliness of Rambo's belly.
