    [QUOTE]It's the first inter-species story of 2013. And not unlike the odd couple tales that came before it, it's pretty adorable. After going blind from cataracts, 8-year-old dog Terfel struggled to get around on his own. He spent most of his time lazing around in his basket in his owner's North Wales, UK home.
    Then his owner, Judy Godfrey-Brown, welcomed a stray cat into her home.

    The cat, dubbed Pwditat, walked up to the blind dog and led him into the garden. Ever since, the cat has been Terfel's trusty guide, leading him everywhere./QUOTE]





    "Iíve never seen anything like it ó most cats and dogs hate each other," Godfrey-Brown told the Sun. "But Pwditat immediately seemed to know that Terfel is blind. She uses her paws to help guide him. They are glued to each other and even sleep together now."
    This summer, we saw a cute kitten cuddling with a canine friend.

    Cats and dogs might not always get along, but when they do, it's pretty heartwarming.

    Oh, how sweet.

    What a wonderful story! Thank you, Candace.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    The first blind cat I adopted (Ptolemy) came with his sighted brother (Newton). Well it turns out that Newton acted as a "seeing eye cat" for Ptolemy as he learned his way around the house. Since that point I have adopted other blind cats and Newton performs the same role for them while they adjust to the house.

    I guess we will never know what they are thinking, but I find it fascinating.
