Your morning adorable: Cat grooms friendly rabbit

April 8, 2010 | 12:01 pm

Our cat-licking-(insert non-feline species name here) video kick continues Thursday with Ava, a rescued cat who's good pals with Nibbles, a Dutch rabbit.

According to the pair's owner, YouTube user bluetree3000, the little nips Ava makes are nothing more than "love bites," and in "bunny body language Ava's grooming acknowledges that Nibbles is the alpha bunny."

We like Ava already, but her story gets better: She's a rescue who was found with a swollen abdomen. A veterinary exam showed that Ava's swelling was the result of a gunshot wound; a bullet had become embedded in her body and caused a hernia to develop. Fortunately, Ava "had surgery to repair the hernia and is the sweetest cat we've ever known despite her horrible ordeal," bluetree says. Now that's a success story we can appreciate!
