Your morning adorable: Cat loves guinea pig
We find it unbelievably charming when animals of different species look past their differences to become good friends. When a deer befriends a cat, say, or when a dog and a duckling share a squeaky toy, we will be there, and we will quite possibly be dabbing at our eyes with a handkerchief.
So we were bound to love YouTube user stephanie0294's video depicting the friendly overtures of her cat, Rusty, toward her guinea pig, Pipsqueak. Rusty seems to be determined that the two should become the best of friends. (We can't tell from Pipsqueak's demeanor if he agrees or would prefer the cat to simply leave him alone. Nonetheless, we find the whole encounter enchanting.)
If you've experienced an episode of four-legged friendship among your own pets, we'd love to see it! Share your photos (.jpg format) and videos at Your Scene, The Times' photo-sharing site. Be sure to include a caption that tells us a little about your pets!
