Unusual Animal Friendships That Could Melt Anyone’s Heart


Animal Friendships

Did you know that cats only meow at humans as a survival mechanism that makes us take care of them? Well, the animals on this list are free to be themselves and have no need to convince us they’re cute.

At Apegeo, we have nothing but admiration for an animal’s ability to be compassionate and friendly, which is why we’re so excited to share these photos with you! When all is said and done, we could all use to be inspired by these animals’ acts of kindness.

1. Kids are kids — even huskies know this.

2. Did you know that “house leopards” in Africa are commonly friends with house dogs? Maybe the same chemistry worked for this dog and leopard at an American zoo.

3. The natural born hunter and prey

4. Callie and Stewart have their own Instagram and a beautiful friendship.
