ANIMAL ADVICE: PETS CAN TEACH US HOW TO GET ALONG

Watch you pets interact and you might learn something. Two-year-old Parker the Labrador-mix, who used to live outside, joined his new family of 5 indoor cats and one women, who no longer wanted the label of "cat lady."

How would all these animals get along? The cats had not lived with a dog. The dog had lived outside, and did not know any cats. 

Parker knew he was outnumbered, so he did the smart thing, and deferred to those already ruling the kingdom. He turned on all his puppy-ish charm and warmed the hearts of very proud and territorial kitties. He showed his appreciation of acceptance by gently preening one of his new charges, Cooper the cat.

Let's follow Parker's advice: respect your differences and take care of each other's needs, like grooming, (and don't eat the other's food, either.)

Here's Parker the Dog, preening Cooper the Cat:
