Dr. Venkman Was Right!

Wigan: After a friendship that extended to sharing a basket, a dog named Oscar has shown he was not content to let the grave separate him from his feline companion Arthur.

Arthur died at the age of 17 and was buried in the back yard of his owners. During the night Oscar dug Arthur up, cleaned him up, and carried him to the basket they had shared. The two were found together in the basket the next morning.

Arthur has been reburied in a grave that is much more likely to let him rest in peace and Oscar has a new companion - a kitten called Limpet. According to owner Mavis Bell Oscar is already very protective of his new friend.

Bad craziness.

We really need to stop trusting pets and anthropomorphizing them.

It's more likely this is what was happening was this.

Naladahc: Caution, signs of the apocolypse like this one come in threes. Or is it sevens? I can never remember. Still, your apparent happenstance is clearly an omen!

Anaïs Nohant: Ack! That's right! Dr. Venkman is never wrong!

Sleestak: You are merely trying to make light of the situation! This was evil interspecies sex inidcating th apocolypse, not a late night snack!

What a sweet story! I think it's sweet that the doggie missed his friend and they had to go get a new friend to console him!

Swinebread: To be honest, I did not think that I could find a picture that would match the emotional content of the story.

Liberality: That's how I felt. I recently lost a cat, and as dark as the humor is to the story, I can deeply understand and sympathize with the dogs feelings.
