Cats And Possums Can Make Friends With ANYONE
Let's face it, opossums make friends everywhere they go. Sure, it might be a clingy kind of love. But a baby opossum's love is never unrequited.
Take this picture, for example. Posted to Facebook a couple years back, it pretty much redefines that old chestnut, "Look what the cat dragged in."
According to the photo's caption, the cat just came home one day, scratching at the back door to be let in, and surprise! Brought a friend.
It is, of course, not the only time cats and opossums have formed an unlikely bond.
And even shared a meal.
Why do opossums love cats so much? Maybe they're just really into cuddling - as in, if there's no living thing around, even a stuffed toy will do.
Or maybe we shouldn't question opossum love and just savor the sweet simplicity of these tiny, but mighty, hearts.
And maybe it's not all about the opossums. Cats have been known to befriend all kinds of creatures.
Like this cat, who, according to this Facebook post, wouldn't have survived in the wild if it weren't for the bond he developed with a fox.
And for this friendship, sometimes even fur is optional.
The same sentiment may also apply to possums.
