Everyone loves adorable animals of all kinds. But if one cute kitten, puppy, or bunny is charming, a pair of them might be irresistible - and that pair can get even more lovable when they are mismatched.
Accordingly, here are our favorite interspecies animal couples…
The Fox And The Hound
This Norwegian twosome is an unusual pair that became fast friends when they met during a walk the woods. Tinni the dog and Sniffer the fox play together as friends, despite being considered natural enemies. Love their unlikely story? Tinni’s owner plans to release a book filled with photos of the fox and the hound.
The Lion, The Tiger, And The Bear (Oh My!)
Lions and tigers and bears might be a frightening trio, but this group of furry friends at the Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Georgia is frighteningly adorable. Baloo the black bear, Leo the Lion, and Shere Khan were all rescued together, and they’re perhaps the sweetest group of creatures in the sanctuary.
The Husky And The Kitten
Siberian huskies and stripey little tabby kittens are both pretty adorable on their own, but Raven and Woodhouse together multiply the cuteness - look at how content they are together! Their owner brought Raven to the animal shelter to pick out his new kitten friend, and it seems that everything worked out beautifully!
The Cat And The Owl
This Brazilian pair met when Cleo the cat’s owner took in Forbi the owl as a baby, and the two became fast friends nearly immediately. From natural enemies to the best of friends!
The Cheetah And The Australian Shepherd
These two were adopted together at two months and they became fast friends, bonding over destroying their new home (puppies and cheetahs can be rough on carpets and furniture). But who could be mad at creatures as adorable as Sahara and Alexa!
There’s a lesson for humans in all this interspecies togetherness, and it’s pretty simple: no matter how different we are, we’re all on this planet together. So wouldn’t it be better if we all just get along!
