Kitten and puppy in Hyderabad

Extreme cuteness was found on the front of Yahoo news yesterday (and I'm not talking about Ayman al-Zawahiri). From AP:

A puppy and a kitten play together as they are brought for vaccination on the occasion of Zoonoses Day in Hyderabad, India, Friday, July 6, 2007. Zoonoses are diseases and infections which are naturally transmitted between vertebrate animals and man. Zoonoses Day is celebrated on July 6 every year to bring the problem into people's consciousness, and to remind them to take action. (AP Photo/Mahesh Kumar A)

The photo seemed pretty impropable, but it does carry a legit AP credit. Not only is getting the puppy and kitten to pose like that unusual, but so is the idea of a pet kitten in India, where traditionally cats are not treated as pets. But certainly a lot of the younger kids seemed fond of cats when I was there in 2006. And Hyderabad is a booming center of high-tech and bio-tech with a large professional class who may be more likely to have cats and dogs as companion animals in their homes.
