I never expected Ilyich to become good friends with Rocco, after all he was already 6 years old when we introduced the dog. I was happy to see that he accepted him and on rare occasions acknowledged his existence. Recently, however, he took a sudden interest in the dog – he comes over to sniff him and makes a point of jumping over him instead of simply walking around.
Couple of weeks ago he took over the dog’s bed in the living room. And since Rocco knows better than to mess with the cats, he simply lays down on the floor with a deep sigh.
