The Craziest Animal Friends

If there’s one thing people love, it’s money. Woah, that’s not what I meant to say. I meant porn. Ah! No, no, no… What I really meant was people love stories about animals making friends with other kinds of animals and lots of cute pictures of them hanging out together. And why? Honestly I’m not really sure. But here you go anyway.

If there is a god, I see proof of it in images like these.
I think this is how it was meant to be, and people can learn from it:
If defying instinct like this is possible for animals, can people defy their prejudices?

Monika, you're on the internet now. There are no limits on the length of your comment, and you have a keyboard in front of you. There is no use in spelling "are" as "r" and "have" as "hv", and quite frankly it makes you look like a retard. Vowels are there for a reason.

I won't even address your naïvité. You're either a teenage girl or mentally challenged. Either way, good luck.

I've been collecting these stories for a while now, and am glad to see your webpage about them. Unfortunately, the story about the tigers and piglets is even more grim than you thought. Be sure to read this article in its entirity:

http://www.bornfree.org.uk/zoocheck/zcnews040501.shtml

Someone mentioned the lioness who keeps adopting oryxes. The story has beauty, but also sadness:

On a lighter note, here's some happier "adoptions":

Cat and bear are reunited:

Umm, the reason the cat does that trampling and nuzzling up, is because it´s instincts. Kittens do that to stimulate milk on their mothers. They also do it on humans, if they are allowed that is. So, that´s what it was doing, mimicing the same thing it would do if it was it´s mother. It´s probably a safety-thing it does to feel that it´s secure and safe.
Still, cutest story.

Some other tidbits I got from the video. This happened in Kagoshima, and most of what the background announcer says is along the lines of "Wow, he's gotten strong", so you're not missing much there. In the three month gap between reports, the cat's started stealing the hen's food. And about the sneaking in late at night, the announcer comments he sneaks in like a ninja and tramples the hen trying to get its head under its wing like it used to. In the end, Kome just ends up cuddling next to Kokko.

Seems to be the type of over-announced cute segment that would get aired on the news in the morning. Cute.

Well, my Japanese has gotten a little rusty, but here goes:

Kome was a stray cat. (They are plentiful in Japan.) He/She just showed up one day in the hen house. Kome got into the hen house as you saw, by climbing the wire mesh door and squeezing in through the top. The odd thing is that instead of attacking the hen (Kokko), Kome just likes to nuzzle under Kokko's wing and go to sleep, which Kokko allows. They first became aware of this story several months ago when Kome was just a kitten, but even though Kome has gotten much larger in the meantime, Kome and Kokko still snuggle to go to sleep. Kome comes in later in the evening than when he/she was a kitten, but he/she still comes in. I'm sure the Japanese see a parallel to the typical Japanese husband and wife pair. Honeymooners rush home to be with their new spouse, but husbands who have been married a while come home late because they are "working hard." It's been a few years since I used the language regularly, and my computer speakers aren't very good, so that's all I could get for now.

Re: The Kitten and the Rooster.

Just FYI: That's a hen (female), not a rooster (male).

Cutest pics EVER.

Just so you know, about the one with the cat and the rooster, the cat's name is Kome and the rooster's name is Kokko. Too bad I couldn't really keep up with the rest of it.

Don't forget the snake-hamster story (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4627950.stm), or the lioness and the antelope (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/1905363.stm)...

I do believe that is not a rooster, but a HEN.
That cat is relentless!

There's no accounting for taste in friends.

Thank you for this great page!

This is great! i recently saw a show about a dog who had befriended a fish that its owner kept in a pond- you should try and track down some pics as it was truly one of the oddest pairings out there!

anyhoo- thx for the great site
