Ofcharka and Jade have a love for one another that is evident. They often cuddle together and he licks her ears. She stand there and loves the attention. They sometimes sleep together too. Jade is a Maremma dog. Lately, though, Ofcharka and the cats have become quite friendly and they are often near him or cuddling with him. For a while he just ignored them, but it seems that now they are friends. Today, the cat was up on the fence as usual when I was doing chores and Ofcharka jumped up to say hello. I tried to get the shot of the cat cuddling him and rubbing her face on his muzzle, but missed it. It was so charming. The cats are always about when I do chores. They come for a drink of water and follow me around, along with the dogs, hoping for a morsel of attention. I don't know quite why they are as friendly as they are towards me, because I show them very little love really, only a pat here and there. Cats just aren't my animals. They do have a job on the farm and of course, that is to hunt mice and I don't see many mice around, so hopefully they are doing their job. Maybe they will teach Ofcharka to hunt mice?
