Chico and Phoebe, 2002

Originally uploaded by brunobaby.
We adopted Chico after Phoebe's littermate Pongo died in 2001. Chico was about 18 months old at the time, and Phoebe was almost 17 years. But she was still pretty fiesty and strong, so we figured she'd either adopt him or kill him.

Basically, she hissed at him and swatted at him for a month while he continually pestered her, grinning like a monkey. Then one night she said, "Aw well, what the hell" and started cleaning his ears.

Thus began a wonderful "Harold and Maude" affair that lasted until Phoebe's death last April, at the age of nearly twenty.
