I did this recently for a challenge -- "How You Think of Love"

This idea came to me because of a story I had read about a cat and horse in Australia. The cat was cantankerous, hissing, spitting and scratching at anyone who came near. But when the owner bought a horse and moved her on the pasture behind his house, the cat was seen approaching the horse and appeared to be trying to make friends. As the horse hung her head over the wall, the cat hopped up on the wall and proceeded to rub the horse's head all over.

The two have been best buddies since that day, and the cat is a much more mellow cat all round.

I still have the news clipping on the wall of my cubicle at work.

Mil horse and cat, Ajrarn's MorphWall in the freebies here, Horse Texture by CWRW.

Post work in Photoshop Elements - I applied a rough pastel filter and tweaked it till I was happy with it.

Thanks in advance for your comments :)

Yeah the pets or let's say animals in general can show us stupid humans how to behave.
when you see someone walking a dog and the dog behaves irrational or idiotic,you can be sure that the owner is an idiot as well-lol-really i mean it,i usually try to keep away from such people or idiots in general wich is hard nowadays because there are more and more.where do we go???:laugh-hihuha.

anyway brilliant idea this one-and the posing and overall settings are perfect. a favo to me.

This is fantastic. My mom has a farm and she once had a cat who loved the horses. The cat would sleep in the stalls with the horses, follow the horses in the pasture and would sit on the fence with the horses right there. She was funny.

A wonderful story. Excellent image to go with this story, too. ;o) I have heard of similar stories. We adopted a half-wild cat several years ago, and actually, she was more like 3/4s wild. Our mellow terrier-mix taught her how to be calm, and loving, and she accepted us after this.
