Your morning adorable: Cat gives guinea pig a bath

November 10, 2010 | 12:01 pm

We love any friendship between members of different animal species, but we think bonus points should be awarded to friendships between animals that would traditionally be considered predator and prey.

Like a cat and a guinea pig, for example.

Now, don't get us wrong -- we've known and loved our fair share of cats in our time. But we wouldn't have trusted any of them very far with a guinea pig.

So Louie, a tomcat with a nurturing streak, has earned our admiration. Louie "has adopted Butterball the guinea pig for his baby," YouTube user Firefly80 explains. "Louie finally has the baby he has always wanted, and Butterball has a mommy."

It's sweet enough to make your teeth hurt, eh?
