Has anyone ever had a cat that bonded with an animal that was a natural enemy? When I was young I had a cat Melissa who my other cat gave birth to. She was the runt and I knew I would keep her from day one! She was a sweetheart who i could hold in my arms and rub her belly until she fell asleep. She would go outside and hunt everything birds,mice, she even caught a bat once that had gotten in through our fire place! When she was about one I brought home a hamster, my mother was freeking out telling me melissa was going to eat him! To make a long story short the hamster ( daffy) would constantly chew his way out of his cage and somehow get himself down the steps. Melissa would pick him up like a kitten and carry him back up stairs and meow until we got him back in! If he was in his ball she would follow him around meowing like something was wrong.She treated him just like a kitten. When daffy died she went into mourning she would'nt leave the room his cage was in for three days... It was so sad! Does anyone else have a similar story?
