In a nutshell

This picture pretty much sums up the dynamic between MR and our cat Li Li (lee-lee). MR loves this cat, and the cat loves him right back. Even back when he was in utero MR got loves when Li Li would cuddle up with my belly. She's pretty much the only animal that shows any feeling, especially affection, towards our little guy. It helps that she is a masochist at heart, she loves to have her tail pulled and she likes being played with rough. Seriously, you could pull this cat around by her whiskers and she would come purring back for more. You can imagine how this works nicely with MR's form of play, he often comes away from loving his friend with a fistful of fur. Two peas in a pod, these two.

They sound just like Little Elvis and our cat Wally. Wally loved to snuggle into my belly when I was pregnant, even when Little Elvis was kicking like mad. Wally also helped Little Elvis start crawling. He would sit within reaching distance and as soon as Little Elvis got close enough, Wally would scooch a few inches away. We did a music video about their friendship, if you want to watch -- http://www.pregnantlyplump.com/2008/01/friends-fur-ever.html
