Can't We All Just Get Along??

This is just something I can't get out of my head.. So I have two cats, and one dog. My boyfriend also has one dog, that means that in my small-ish
Manhattan dwelling there are 4 pets and two humans..

My Dog is Chloe.. cute, sweet, overly-affectionate pit bull mix (I think pit boxer actually, but really I'm not sure.) anyway she sleeps in her crate every night.. I say to Chloe, "ok, go ni-night" and away she goes tail wagging and all.. Last night, as usual I said those magic words and off she went for her nightly slumber, locked the crate and went to bed.

The next morning my boyfriend opened her crate only to see not ONLY Chloe exiting, but also my sweet 13 year old cat Timothy.. apparently they had some sort of rendezvous in Chloe's crib last night.

The thing I love most about this story is the big, mean, scary, society-shunned, mauling peoples faces, attacking young children, should-all-be-put-to-sleep, pit bull in a tiny 3.5' x 2.5' locked crate with a timid, tiny, fairly elderly feline. Trapped for close to 8 hours in that tiny space and they both exited without so much as a scratch.

I've had Timothy for 13 years, Chloe for nearly 9 and this blows me away. I knew they could be ok in the same house, hell even in the same room for hours or even days at a time, but this did surprise me. Don't get me wrong I did have faith, but I wasn't truly sure what would happen when natural enemies accidentally get trapped in such close quarters. Now I know. I have two very brave, er, um.. one very brave and one very tolerant pet to be proud of..

On the left is Chloe the sweetest pit bull in the world on the right is Timmy the oh so brave kitty.
