Our hearts are often warmed with videos and stories on the internet about different-species friendships. This my friends, is not a case of such friendship.
“Meow, I’m having a sleep over, will you stay for breakfast?”
I keed, I keed, these two really are best buds and wuv each other vevy vevy much.
In 1991, a baby owl fell out of its nest and into the life of Mrs. Toyoko. Since then, she’s been caring for the nocturnal cutie by preparing its meals (he really likes sushi) and by providing the wayward critter a safe haven. Mrs. Toyoko is now seventy-nine and credits her good health to looking after her pet owl.
And since we love owls, sushi and eccentric old ladies that means this video is pretty much amazing.
Well… who are we to judge? The heart wants what the heart wants.
The love that dare not squeak its name…
Jeez, get a room already…
Actually, thinking about it, it looks more like the dog is doing some light gnawing, but in a loving way so all is good, YAY!
A ray of sunshine in the midst of all the doom and gloom plastered all over the news these last weeks. Thanks Salati and Tommy for brightening up our day.
It’s a role reversal not commonly seen, but then the cat chasing this dog is a little larger than most.
Salati, a ten-month-old leopard, and her best friend, golden retriever Tommy, like nothing more than to run amok before settling down for a friendly cuddle.
The odd couple were reared together at Glen Afric Country Lodge near Pretoria in South Africa.
Animal wrangler Richard Brooker, 23, raised Salati and takes her and family dog Tommy for their daily exercise together.
Each morning, he walks them on his family’s 1,850-acre estate and then lets them run free to their hearts’ content.
He said: ‘Wherever you see one the other is right behind. They are inseparable and both have lots of energy so they get the exercise they both need together.
