Oh Bea is lovely, so nice to see a grey and a cat being pals, wouldn't happen with our two unfortunately! 

This is our other grey - Angel, on the sofa as usual! :)  And our 'fat lad' Ty, hmmm...he has grown a lot since then!...
Err...and the pics...

Yeah - he is a real sweetie, still a bit nervous of new people and some dogs, but so much better than when we first got him.  He's a rescue (like all our animals) and had been re-homed twice, spent most of his life in a garage/shed and was terrified of everything - poor boy.
He is chief lap warmer now! :)

What a sweetie:)

I wonder if that's a job they take on when they are getting passed around before they find you (the permanent home). My little Terrier was 4 months old when we rescued him and we were his 4th home :ohmy:. He's our chief lap-warmer :D

Oh no - 4 homes before finding you :ohmy:

Rotten isn't it, but at least he has found his forever home at last!

The greys are no good as lapwarmers - too bony  :tongue2: or is it that we are too bony so they prefer the sofa...hmmm...

We never knew why Ty was so terrified of the world, in some respects I'm glad I don't know what he had to deal with - he's a happy boy now though, Chyna (the white hound) is his fave playmate and he has a very healthy respect for Angel (the black lady) as she is royalty (she thinks) ;)

What lovely dogs you have Arnfields!

Bea was described as 'cat friendly' when I got her. I think 'cat tolerant' is a more suitable description!
We had to do a bit of training with her around the cats at first, but she soon decided that she was outnumbered, and they don't bother her at all now.

...ours have finally got used to Mr Bunny, Ty tries to get him to play :) but a cat in the house, goodness NO!!!
A friend of ours across the canal has two gorgeous greys and they co-habit with her cats with no problems.
Mum's grey isn't too interested in them either - or our chooks, but the Bunny - crikey!
Then there is Uncles grey - will chase anything, do g, cat, squirrel, plastic bag!?!?...

They are all different aren't they - but totally adorable :)

It seems that way doesn't it!  We rescued our two about 5 years ago now, and have been forcing the rest of our family into it ever since :).  My Uncle met ours and was smitten in 5 minutes, had only ever had a cat before he got Homer.
My sister however, has got herself a beardy collie - don't know what happened there :)
