Pics Capturing Unlikely Yet Beautiful Interspecies Friendships

One of the things that we can learn from the animal world is that no matter how different we are, no matter how different our behavior is, we can still find ways to get along. Interspecies friendships happen all the time in the animal world - for different reasons and in different circumstances, whether it's the classic whacky friendships between cats and dogs or unlikely friendships like a white lion and a Bengal tiger who grew up together.

We can love and be best of friends despite our differences, and this collection of unlikely yet beautiful interspecies animal friendships is all the proof we will ever need of it.

There are times in the animal world where animals make such unique families and friendships with each other, and this is one of the newest, most wholesome ones. This amazing hen has taken a whole lotta newborn kittens under its wings (literally) and has been taking care of them alongside their cat momma.

Even cat moms need a break sometimes, and trusting their babies with another animal is a challenge. But, the absolutely unique interspecies friendship created between these two animals is strong enough to withstand their differences and give us one of the most heartwarming family videos we've seen in a while.

Get ready for one of the craziest adventure, everyone - a video so long with so many twists and turns, you will not be able to look away. This adventure is one of friendship, trust, having babies, territorialism, and mild swearing. And we are insanely invested. 

Meet Steven, the wild seagull that has become an internet sensation. Feeding Steven on Youtube has been attempting for the past 69 days to gain Steven's trust by feeding him food better than we feed ourselves - all the way to lobster and caviar. And throughout these 69 days, the internet has been blessed with one of the most wholesome human & animal friendships ever. 

Steven is still wild, of course, but he seems to be accepting his new human friend more and more over time. We hope their friendship flourishes even more, and we hope Steven's new family survives and lives a long and happy life.

Cat Chooses Toy Fish As New Best Friend (Viral Thread)

Sometimes, in the animal world, animals can have some strange friendships. We have seen animals make friends in the most unexpected moments and situations. Like the loving friendship between a leopard and a Rottweiler or the heartwarming 37-year friendship between a man and the swan he rescued. But the new friendship shared by dontgiveashoot on imgur is something different. 

It seems that this awwdorable cat has chosen its new toy fish as its new best friend, giving it half its bed and everything, and the internet... the internet's hearts melted seeing these cuties side by side. So, yeah, animal friendships can be incredibly unique - from befriending other species to humans to toys, and it's all too wholesome for this world.

Everyone always thinks that cats and dogs can't get along, but we - as both cat and dog people - know better. Cats and dogs can be absolute best friends. They will cuddle, they will play together, they will bicker like old married couples. Cats sometimes use dogs as pillows, dogs sometimes offer cats their beds

A lot of times, it's just about introducing them young. That way, they will most likely not be shocked by each other's mannerisms. Except for this dog. This dog is s h o o k by this teeny weeny kitty occupying its bed. The kitten doesn't know any better, most likely thinking of the dog as a warm pillow, but the doggo... oh the doggo is so confused - in the most awwdorable way possible.

We think that the fact that the cat is sitting on the dog by the end of the video is a pretty good sign of what their friendship will look like in the future.

Unlikely animal friendships are one the things we like to see the most. It's the best proof that anyone can be friends with anyone even if they're extremely different. This video of a bobcat and house cat cuddling is one of our favorite ones. 

It shows two things: Bobcats can be sooo awwdorable and not scary. The bobcat kitten whose favorite toy is fennel is another example of an adorable wild cat. In the same breath, they also show that regular house cats can be incredibly affectionate and patient. 

We hope that these two kitties stay friends for as long as they can be. We can only hope that their friendship will be as strong as that of the cat who adopted a lynx cub and raised it alongside her babies.

We all have that one weird friend, right? And we're totally in love with them. We know that some friendships are more unlikely than others. And yet, despite knowing that, when we heard that this cat's best friend is a teeny-tiny almond, we were still surprised. And totally smitten. 

Ari, the "very scary" black cat is actually a wholesome little drama queen that we all can't help but fall in love with. She does the scary crab pose a lot, she's a ninja cat who has the amazing ability of climbing walls, and the fact that awwdorable black cats have such a bad reputation doesn't help with her image. But she's a whole sweetheart, she's obsessed with little almonds, and you know what? We are totally obsessed with her back, specifically because of how much of a weirdo she is.

Is there anything cuter in the world than an itty bitty newborn baby fox? Yes, there is. Two adorable baby foxes meeting each other for the first time and tripping over themselves with excitement. 

Both of these foxes have been orphaned, but thankfully, they have found themselves in good hands. The people taking care of them wanted nothing more than for these foxes to find friendship within the company of other foxes. And so, they found the first rescued fox cub a friend, and the excitement of their first meeting was so overwhelming, it melted our whole hearts.

Viral Thread: Loving Yet Wacky Friendship Of A Cat And Dog

There exists a prevailing idea that cats and dogs cannot be friends. Well, friends, let us prove you wrong. Cats and dogs can be BFFs, and not only that, but their friendships can be the most wholesome ever. Not this cat and dog though. This unlikely pair of friends went viral on the internet for the funniest reason. They're friends, yeah, and their friendship, although lovely, is also mildly kooky and wacky. 

We love it, and so did the internet. It feels like looking at the reality of cats and dogs being friends, and not just the wholesomeness that's caught in pretty pictures on the internet. Cats and dogs are very different, yeah, but being different would never stop them from being (mildly kooky) friends.
