Cat and mouse


I have to blog this story because I have seen how a dog and cat can also love each other and be together in harmony.

The cat’s name is Ranj and he is a lovely ginger tom. Can you tell I am partial to ginger cats?

Apparently it is nothing new for two cross breeds to bond like the cat and rat or like Skittles and Ruby. Below is an example of an orphan elephant bonding with a sheep.

Themba the elephant, pictured above, became attached to Albert the sheep after he became orphaned at just six months of age.

In other cases, different species connect after the loss of a mate.

'It's amazing what animals do when they want to bond and be close to each other,' Mark Bekoff, a professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, told Animal Welfare Institute Quarterly.
