Post Dog saves a cat? And that's not the weird thing!
Every day we learn something new. Today I learned that dogs and cats can share the same blood.
Crazy, right? If you don't believe me just check on the link.

Now I wonder if inter-species relationships are legal in New Zealand.

Well that's silly for a start. the dog didn't 'donate' since he had no choice in the matter. It wasn't the dog's choice to donate the blood it was his owner. Not exactly a dog saving a cat as a dog being used to save a cat. Completely different things.

Well, duh, that's just the title they used to draw people's attention. It's not like you're going to ask the dog "hey, you wanna save a cat who you never seen before? We need your blood by the way" and the dog answers "Sure, why not? And later I want to join to the dogs scouts!". This is the real world, you can't expect animals to make decisions.

The point is that is highly unbelievable than members of two different species could have compatible blood.

Oh, don't worry, I knew you were pointing out the stupidness of the title and article, I was agreeing with you on it, not chastising you.
And yes, science is a strange thing but it isn't really that surprising if you understand the basics of blood types. Heck, I know a man with a pig's heart valves.
