Wholesome Pics Of Cats Befriending Other Animals

Cats are kind of known to be uh cough cough antisocial creatures. Sometimes it is true, I'm not gonna lie. However, a lot of the time it very much isn't the case! For example, cats and dogs oftentimes get along swimmingly despite all the rumors. With a little getting used to and enough encouragement, a lot of animals can absolutely get along with cats! Cats just show their love in funny ways sometimes.

Some of the photos you will see here are cats with animals they are "supposed" to fight with, like dogs. Some of the photos even include photos of cats with animals they are "supposed to eat, like birds. If a cat can freakin adopt a duck as one of its own, maybe world peace is closer than we think!

A bit of kindness to animals can go a long way, and sometimes, it can even form the most adorable, unique interspecies friendships. That is the case with this wholesome video in which a hummingbird - amazingly - waits outside of its favorite human's window, waiting to be hand-fed by it. We've never seen anything quite like this. It's almost like you can actually feel the affection that this bird has for this human.

We've fallen in love with this beautiful unique bird just as much as its human, and it's not even because we love birds in general and think that birds are incredibly silly and funny. It's because this bird and its human have one of the most wholesome stories we've heard of.

Tumblr Thread: Mourning Dog Befriends Duck And Gets Happy Again

Losing someone is always hard - for all of us. Apparently, that is true for animals as well. And it was especially true for George the dog. He had lost his very best doggo friend and has been heartbroken for 2 years since his passing, acting depressed and tired, not smiling nearly as much as he used to

But then one day, something amazing happened. Out of nowhere, a duck waddled into George's life and absolutely insisted on the two of them becoming best friends. And lo and behold, a heartwarming interspecies friendship developed. Soon, George began smiling again, and seeing him happy made us smile just as much.

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.

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. 

It was love at first sight, the two of them seem to have simply known that they belong together. Now, the kitten is the cutest lap cat and is living happily ever after in a forever home full of other cats, and we couldn't have been happier. A cat adopting a kitten, what more can one ask for?
