The Lion Shall Lie Down with the Lamb

Over at ATBC one of our brightest detractors Altabin (banned here, natch, because he’s just too smart for us) suggested an experiment. He misquoted the bible of course. It’s wolf and lamb or lion and calf. But we get his drift.
53. Were all the animals friendly to man before the Flood? Idea: raise several baby animals like snake and mouse together to see if they remain friends as they are older.
That one may not have such a happy ending. Next time try it with a lion and a lamb.
As it just so happens…
That’s my newest kitty, Liam, about 3 months old and 5 pounds at the top and Kiera, one of my shepherds, 13 months old and 65 pounds at the bottom. The photo was taken this week. Note that Liam is on his back with his belly exposed. In a dog that’s a submissive posture but in a cat it means “I feel safe here with you”.
Not exactly a wolf and a lamb but not that much different either.
