Different species of animals, as well as, wild and domestic animals don’t usually get along well, as they obey the hierarchy that exists in the animal kingdom. But there are many stories, proving that our furry little friends are have better social skills than many representatives of human race, as they adapt better and even the biggest enemies can become the best pals.
Many of these odd couples were formed under weird circumstances or were preceded by a series of unfortunate events but all these cute furry buddies overcame their problems and now enjoy each other’s company.

We have based this presentation on various news sources and added a section, where you can see the credits and a section with links for further reading (all the footage is used either on the creative commons of the fair use terms).
