Cats - Is There Anything They Can't Do?

"Meet Cashew and Libby.

Libby was honored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as Cat of the Year. The Daily Item explained:

Cashew, a yellow Labrador/Shar Pei mix who died in 2005 at 14, gradually went blind and deaf due to old age, Terry said.

As the dog found it harder and harder to get around, Libby stepped in, leading her canine friend to her food bowl, waiting for Cashew's return from inside the Burns' home and watching over the dog while the two slept side-by-side.

According to the article, Libby hasn't gotten over the death of Cashew and is not interested in making friends with new dogs."

Typical cat, help one dog then it's done.

That's not it at all. They just give and give and give of their love that it just gets all used up.
