This Unlikely Friendship Between A Cat And A Macaque Is So Aww-Dorable

Jo Jo and Alan are unlikely best friends at Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand.

Who says cats are not friendly? Little Alan here is so friendly he's made friends with long-tailed macaques! The unlikely friendship has sprung up at the Wildlife Friends Foundation in Thailand (WFFT), where Alan, a stray cat, has found a best friend in Jo Jo, a rescued long-tailed macaque. Tom Taylor, Assistant Director of the foundation, told NDTV that Alan had been "hanging around" for a few months now, living within the macaque field, but it was only last week that they noticed him interacting with Jo Jo.

"They spend time up on the platforms in the enclosure, relaxing, sleeping and grooming each other," says Mr Taylor.

Just last night, says Mr Taylor, another macaque joined in friendship, and they were all seen grooming.

According to WFFT, Alan shares food with the macaques and Jo Jo seems to love him.

"Although this is not an ideal situation and something we do not encourage, Alan is unharmed and Jo Jo seems to love him, so we have decided to leave them together," they write in their Facebook post.

Mr Taylor adds that the foundation has never observed such a friendship between a monkey and a cat at WFFT before, and that they are trying to get more pictures of the pair together.
