Here is a weird thing. My dog and my cat do not get along particularly well. They don't fight, usually. Every now and then they play, but they have all different ideas of what play means so that doesn't usually work out.

A couple of months ago the cat had to go to the vet, and he had to stay there overnight. When I brought him home, the dog rejoiced. He acted just almost as happy as if another family member had been away for a bit and then returned. Maybe not quite as delighted as one of my friends that he likes showing up, or the kid getting home from camp, but still, happy. Surprised the hell out of all of us. Especially, I think, the cat.

So apparently he accepts the cat as a pack member. And I think he misses the other cat, too. (Saha, 1997-2014, now buried in the rose garden.)
