Cat and owl playing - Fum & Gebra - Perfect friendship!

It's a scene that would make Edward Lear proud.

This owl and pussycat really have become the best of friends - and they've attracted almost half a million fans thanks to their YouTube video.

The amazing footage shows Fum the cat and Gebra the barn owl playing together in the open countryside.

The pair clearly enjoy each other's company - every time Gebra comes in to land, her four-legged friend trots up to greet her with a friendly rub and purr.

It is believed the animals get on so well together because they have been pals since they were young.

It is also likely that they have bonded over a mutual instinct to hunt rodents.

Clearly Gebra is the boss in this relationship - when Fum gets a little too excited, she gives him a friendly little peck to calm him down.

But most of the time the pair get on amazingly well.

They play-fight and give each other kisses on the cheek.

In the famous Edward Lear poem, opposite, the Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat.

But this pair are clearly more interested in taking to the skies.

Unfortunately for the furry Fum all he can do is leap into the air when his feathery pal swoops back and forth over his head or climb up into a tree.

    The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
    In a beautiful pea-green boat,
    They took some honey, and plenty of money,
    Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
    The Owl looked up to the stars above,
    And sang to a small guitar,
    "O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
    What a beautiful Pussy you are,
    You are,
    You are!
    What a beautiful Pussy you are!"

    Pussy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl!
    How charmingly sweet you sing!
    O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
    But what shall we do for a ring?"
    They sailed away, for a year and a day,
    To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
    And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
    With a ring at the end of his nose,
    His nose,
    His nose,
    With a ring at the end of his nose.

    "Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
    Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."
    So they took it away, and were married next day
    By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
    They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
    Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
    And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
    They danced by the light of the moon,
    The moon,
    The moon,
    They danced by the light of the moon.
