Unlikely friendship between a fox and a cat

Along the shores of the city of Van in Turkey, foxes are known to romp and play. Have you ever seen a fox in action? They're technically of the same family as dogs are (that would be Canidae), but they act an awful lot like cats.

They leap and pounce on delicate little paws, and hunt vermin like mice and gophers. And their babies are called "kits" -- almost like "kittens."

A wild cat and a fox have been spotted in Lake Van, Turkey, sharing a fish and playing together. Ok, sometimes they fight, but they are totally best friends forever!

The local first spotted the pair feasting on a fisherman's leftovers, and watched as the fox and the cat played and cuddled together, capturing the unlikely pair on camera.

But when you consider a fox's behavior, maybe it's really not such a strange friendship. We bet they have pouncing contests and enjoy admiring each other's tails, telling each other, "You're so pretty." "No, you're so pretty." They probably go hunting for mice together and then curl up and go to sleep.

We imagine they get into their share of arguments and disagreements, but when you're this cute, it's hard to stay angry for long. In fact, we feel instantly better just looking at these photos.

    True friends look past the outside to see what is on the inside.

  5. Cute :) That cat is pretty big, the fox might think the cat is another fox and the cat might think the fox is another cat :)

    They both have beautiful colors and are adorable together. If only humans of different backgrounds could get along as well as they do.
