Romeo the Cat and Juliet the Dog: A Love Story

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Meet Romeo the cat and Juliet the dog, star-crossed lovers at a California animal shelter who are now looking for a home that will take them in -- only if they can stay together, of course.

The orange Tabby and gray Miniature Schnauzer had been living as strays on the street until two weeks ago, when they were rescued and brought to Chula Vista Animal Care Facility in Chula Vista, California, according to Amanda Mills, an administrator at the shelter.

A Good Samaritan had found the pair hiding under a car together and cuddling, Mills told ABC News today. And when they were brought in together, they immediately showed they didn`t want to be separated, and they physically tried to stay together."
