Scout & Marvin's side of the story



Scout's version: I am a very good girl. I come when I'm called and I already sit. I'm very cuddly and follow my mom all over the house. My favorite toy is my rope bunny rabbit. I take lots of puppy naps. I have not nipped at Marvin the cat whatsoever and if he just gives me a chance we can play very nicely. Woof, woof!







Marvin's version: Oh please, I'm so OVER this puppy! Did you know she ate her poop yesterday? She's also peed in her crate twice. And about the toys, I've seen her go after mommy and daddy's shoes. As for playing nicely, if you call chasing me around the house wanting to play nice - then I have a cat condo I want to sell you in the middle east! I've had to slap this youngster on the nose twice - just so she knows - I'm the BOSS of the house. Cats rule. Meow.

Reminds me in a small way, of my granddaughter's reaction when her sister came home from the hospital. My guess is that Scout and Marvin will soon becomes best of friends! One thing for sure...they are both so cute!!

Cats rule, puppies drool. Ain't that the truth!
Marvin looks like he can handle himself quite well as far as Scout is concerned.

oh that picture of marvin! a perfect shot of how he feels :) haha! this little post has made my day!

Karen said...

OH GOSH! IF you figure out how to cure her of her "in-discretionary eating habits" let me know!!!! My little Harley does that - we literally have to be right behind both of them when they poop to pick it up, cause if he finds it, he chows. It's DISGUSTING! And I've tried EVERYTHING, pills, powder, green beans, everything! It is a pain in the rear! It's OK if we are diligent, but to try and board him somewhere? Not going to happen!
Ugh!
Very cute post! Cats rule - it's just a God given fact.
:) Have a safe 4th! Think of me while you are in your kayak! Hugs.

You crack me up! I can just hear Scout and Marvin saying those very words. I think you nailed their feelings EXACTLY!

Jen said...

Things are going just as I suspected they would. :D
great post-Scout is adorable!!!

Rural Rambler said...

Funny, sweet post! They will be Buds before you know it. That picture of Marvin says it all and probably speaks for all kitties!

Scout looks like "WHO, ME?".

Heather said...

Oh you must have your hands full! I love both the pictures, but Marvin really does look unimpressed in his photo. Or perhaps just tired from swatting at Scout? Hee hee!

Ginger said...

I was cracking up reading this. Marvin has probably gotten nipped by those razor sharp puppy teeth once too many times.
Scout's bad habit kind of ruins the puppy breath, doesn't it? lol.
Cute pictures.

They will figure it out i hope. Cat... my cat never did make friends with the dogs we had here (they came as puppies). Most people seem to have a better story to report than I do (o:

Cedar ... said...

Oh Marvin,... you better buck up,... I think Scout's there to stay. So,.... hunker down and grab the best spot on the bed,... I'll bet that soon you two will be laying back to back in front of the fire.

Tami said...

Oh Marvin....bad news little buddy....life will never be the same again.

Very cute, Shelley. Pure domestic "bliss", I'm sure.

Personally, I'd believe Marvin. But Scout is so-o-o-o cute poor Marvin doesn't stand a chance.

You'll see why when you get it (can't say any more - it's a secret!)
