In the darkest moments of your life, it's important to remember that you can always look up "unlikely animal friendships" and feel joy again. If you're really lucky, you might even discover an unlikely animal friendship happening in your own home, like Twitter user @Crucifalex, who discovered their guinea pig and cat were hanging out in secret all along:
we took him out because we didn't want him to hurt her (accidentally or on purpose) but since then, the pig stands by the door of her cage squeaking @ Ruby whenever he comes to check on her (which is way too often) (they're best friends)— alex jacob (@crucifalex) February 23, 2018
Eventually, the two pals had to be separated for their safety, but not before going viral and making an excellent case for adopting kitties:
it makes me sad to think that before he was with us, some asshole caught him in a cat trap & tried to have him put down :((( he's so sweet & all he wanted was some love :'( pls rescue cats, they need us !!!— alex jacob (@crucifalex) February 23, 2018
And they still get supervised visitations:
But @Crucifalex noticed something pretty awesome in the replies—ordinary households are full of unlikely animal friendships!
the best part of this tweet is everyone replying w pics of their own unlikely animal friendships— alex jacob (@crucifalex) February 24, 2018
These pictures will make you question why we assume only the same type of animals would want to hang out with each other. Like, a rabbit has more in common with a cat than with a human. No wonder they want to get together and chat.
Hmm. Kinda makes you wonder...are animal friendships actually unlikely at all?
