The age old feud between cats and dogs seems to have been put to one side as Lilica the German Shepherd becomes inseparable from her feline friends Liza, Viki and male Muro.

 But what makes this friendship even more unusual is as well as being cats, the cubs are also wild lynxes.

Lilica is helping to teach the little cubs how to fend for themselves in the wild as part of a conservation project in the National Park Velka Fatra, Slovakia.

The animals met through a scheme in the country called ‘Return of Lynxes’ aimed at trying to reintroduce the cats into the wild after numbers suffered from hunting.

Conservationist and photographer Tomas Hulik said: ‘The first part of the project was that we took two young lynxes, Liza and Munro at the age of five weeks.

‘After the success lynxes Liza and Muro we gat a new lynx called Viki. This was a unusual moment for Lilica, she started to produce milk just like they were puppies.
