Buddy and Baxter

You cannot look at a sleeping cat and feel tense. - Jane Pauley

I found our cats Buddy and Baxter having an afternoon nap together today. Wouldn't it be great to be a cat...just for a day?
Buddy (on the left) was my husband's cat and Baxter was my cat. At first, when we brought the cats (both boys) together, there was definitely some tense moments: growling, arched backs, hair standing straight up, and hissing. But, before too long, they became best buds. The cats have been together for 10 1/2 years and are completely inseparable. They have very different personalities, but always have a soft spot for each other.

*UPDATE* Buddy and Baxter have since moved on to their great home in Heaven, Buddy leaving us in 2013 and Baxter almost exactly a year later. They lived long lives and have been missed, but we hope they are taking naps together and watching over our family.
