Here are a couple of pictures of Maisy (5.5 months at the time) and Wally, my exotic shorthair cat. Maisy and Wally are buddies.
There is nothing Maisy wants to do more than to play with Wally. Most of the time it looks like Maisy is super aggressive in her play but Wally just hangs around and puts up with it. He does have his claws and does have places to escape to but he doesn't. When Maisy gives up and finds something else to do, Wally will sneak up and attack her. They are so cute together!
Maisy will let Wally eat her food but she is terrribly possessive of it when it comes to my old persian. Poor Norman can't even walk by her bowl without Maisy taking a stance.
