"Charlie and Eli were deep into their brotherhood," Stockton writes of Charlie bonding to his tomcat friend. "On every walk, they stopped under a busy weed and crouched together, eating the tender grass that grew beneath it." It's not very common that people allow coyotes anywhere near their cats, but this pup had only love for the orange tabby.

"Generally, Charlie was so affectionate I had to remind myself he was born wild, that he was a coyote, though he fully gave over to his wild nature when he was scared," she writes.
