When people say that opposites attract, they are talking specifically about this deaf puppy and this 2-year-old girl, we are certain of it. Never have you seen love  stronger than the love between this little human and her doggo. The connection was instantaneous and so heartwarming. For some reason, as the video says, this "girl who can't stop talking , and the guy who can't hear anything" became unlikely best friends right away.

Happily, this love was strong enough for the mom to see it and know that it was meant to be. So, what started as dog sitting for two weeks turned into this awwdorable puppy finding its forever home with an amazing, loving family. And that's all we could ever want for it.

Sometimes, even the most loving animal mommas let go of their little babies in nature, and though it makes us sad, we can only hope that these babies will find someone who will make sure that they are taken care of. Luckily, our world is full of amazing humans, and this adorable itty bitty baby bear has found itself in good hands.

Not only did these humans take care of this little baby bear, but they also introduced it to his now new best friend! There was some trepidation in their relationship at first, but it took one play session for them to fall in love with each other. And when they were finally released back into the wild, they were released together. It's a wholesome, happy ending all around, and we are so glad we get to see it.

When people say that dogs are the friendliest animals, they are 100% right. Dogs will befriend anybody - whether it's us humans, whether it's cats, or sometimes even other animals that you would never expect. Like this little injured parrot. 


It's the story of a most wholesome interspecies friendship that started with the dog going out on a walk and finding this injured parrot. The connection was instant. The adorable doggo wouldn't leave the parrot's side, and when the parrot got better and was able to move around on its own, it wouldn't leave the dog's side either.

Opposites Can Be BFFs Too: Cats And Dogs

Oh... cats and dogs. A battle as old as time. Two animals so incredibly different in behavior that everyone thinks they could never get along. That assumption makes sense. If you've ever studied the way that cats and dogs behave, you would have seen that the same body language cue from one would mean the opposite to the other. For one, extreme tail wiggles are very positive, and for the other, extreme tail wiggles mean you have to get away or the murder-mitten will be put into action. 

But that's not true for all cat and dog pairs. Some of them do learn each other's behavior over time and become best of friends. And because of how different they are, when they do become friends, it is extra adorable. So, here are some adorable best buddies for your heart-fluttering entertainment right here.

Most Heartwarming Interspecies Friendships

Everyone is just a little bit different, whether it be our hobbies that make us different, our interests, the way we behave or the way we look. But that doesn't stop us from being friends. Amazingly enough, the same can be said about animals. 

Countless times have we seen animals that are so incredibly different from each other becoming friends. Sometimes, it's not under the best of circumstances, and other times, it is completely natural. If you're nice to an animal, it might just be nice to you back. If an animal is nice to another animal, the same principal holds.

Please enjoy this collection of animal interspecies friendship, and fall in love with animals just a little nit more.

Here's an animal who you may have never thought was friendly. A raccoon. Meet Larry, the friendliest raccoon you have ever seen, and her little baby - Baby Larry, because to the guy who became BFFs with them, all raccoons are named Larry. 

Larry (the big one, not Baby Larry), eats from a fork, eats corn like a human and occasionally lets her favorite human see her little baby. Her human, in return, does everything in his power to make her life better - from making her a raccoon house off the ground to help her hide from coyotes to filling a kid pool for her to allow her to cool down. So, basically, no matter what animal it is, if you show it love, it might just become your friend, even a raccoon

This friendship is one for the history books, guys. It may be one of the cutest, most beautiful animal friendships we've ever seen. A leopard and a Rottweiler playing and cuddling in the snow together, and they look absolutely in love. Almost as in love with each other as we are with them. 

"The leopard cub learns to play carefully, even while honing its hunting skills, not to release its claws, to control the bite force," says the description of the video. "[A]t the same time, the formidable, but kind Rottweiler allows you to play, bite and climb on your back a cute, but serious kitten." 

You can tell just how much the two of them have adjusted to each other's styles of play, all for the sake of being besties, and the results are soooo heartwarming.

Are you ready for a double explosion of cute? Well, prepare yourself because you're getting not one but two - yes two - tiny baby stoats, and they're meeting each other for the first time. Their reaction to meeting one of their own for the first time is the most adorable thing in the world. They're just so excited, so happy, so instantly friendly and loving. 

Stoats are one of these relatively unknown animals that we feel never get enough love, so this is an opportunity to give stoats some of the love that they deserve. They're so cute, so quick, so energetic, and their cuteness should not be underestimated- as you're about to see.

It always makes us happy to see cats and dogs hanging out together, considering how different they are. So, when they get along, it's always quite special. But these two huge huskies have taken their awwdorable friendship to a whole other level, surrounding the cat and guarding it. From what? We're not sure. But we appreciate the effort anyway. The cat is definitely not complaining either. 

We're just happy knowing that these guys are enjoying each other's company and that they have each other's backs. Well, at least the dogs have the cat's back. But we would like to believe that the cat would very fiercely glare at anyone who dared approach its guard doggos.

Get ready for a video with nothing but wholesomeness. A cat found a stray kitten and brought him home with it, taking the kitten under its wing and showing him around the house, sharing food with him, and being the coolest and most adorable cat mentor of all time.

Heartwarming 37-Year Friendship Between A Man And The Swan He Rescued

An incredible friendship between a man from Turkey and the swan he rescued has lasted for decades. 37 years ago, a now retired postman, Recep Mirzan, found a female swan who he later named Garip in Turkey's western Edirne province, and they have been friends ever since. 

As NEWS CHANNEL 3 reports, "Mirzan and a group of friends were taking a shortcut in their car when they noticed the swan, with a broken wing, in an empty field. Mirzan immediately took the swan in to protect her from predators and kept her in the car until that afternoon, when he was able to take the swan to his home." Ever since then, Garip has been living on Mirzan's farm in the Karaagac region near Greece. Whenever Garip is out of her pen, she accompanies Mirzan during his chores and evening walks. 

Read more about their heartwarming story and check out their even more heartwarming pictures below.

If you ever find yourself in a situation in which you may be about to get into a fight (we sincerely hope not), we just hope you have a good enough friend behind you that can take you out from the heat of the moment. That's exactly what happened to this kitty who came face-to-face with another cat, you know how cats are... always getting into alterCATions! They just can't really seem to help it. 

Luckily for this cat, they had a kind-hearted gold retriever buddy who saw the fight that was about to happen simply wasn't worth it. So what did they doggo do? The dog just picked up the cat and walked away. That's true friendship to us.

Oh... when a cat meets a dog. It's a tale as old as time. From hate and hissing to very slowly and reluctantly accepting the fact that... it feels kinda nice to cuddle the pup and also, the puppy gives pretty good ear baths if you let it. So... it's love! Just reluctant love.

Let's be real, we all know how different cats and dogs are, so it's not surprising that it's difficult for them to get along. That just makes it all the more heartwarming when they do. This week's animation captures exactly that, and don't worry, it ends just as sweetly as you'd hope it to.
