Japan sister city names Maungatautari's newest kiwi chick No beast is a burden to animal rescuer Carolyn Press-McKenzie Yes, your cat is talking to you. Here's what it's saying Why are huskies the most rehomed dog in New Zealand? Hamilton's tiger cubs need names Yellow-eyed penguins having a tough year Furry friends need foster parents Baby (seal) sitters wanted for Ohau Point Husky and dad argue over who gets to eat dad's potato skins This baby hippo learning to swim is the cutest thing you'll see all day

This recently released video of a sloth and a cat who are apparently 'in love*' made us think of all the wonderful examples of interspecies love and friendship that pop up on the internet.

*If you ask us, it kind of looks like the cat is thinking of ways to break it off.

One of our favourite interspecies friendships is the one between Pan & James, a bulldog and a primate who appear together on a popular Japanese television show.

 

If you haven't seen Christian the lion, do yourself a favour. SO MANY TEARS (so long as you can block the movie 'Armageddon' out of your mind).

Last but not least, this video about the unlikely friendship between a crow and a kitten is particularly pleasing due to the re-enactments done by the elderly couple.

Added extra: a photo of a monkey letting a dog have some of his watermelon.

As you were.
