Amazing footage of a cat cuddling an endangered black rhino
The bond between species never stops surprising us. It is one of the most pure and beautiful things in the world. Why? It grows naturally and overcomes all odds. A cat cuddling a huge rhino? It is possible!
This is a typical scene at the Czech Republic’s Safari Park Dvr Králové zoo. Mia (the black cat’s name) and three other cats were taken in by the zoo to keep mice and rabbits out of the wild animal housings.
However, Jan Zdárek, the person in charge of placing the cats, hoped that these felines would have some heartwarming relationships with the animals here.
And this does take place. Mia has a soft spot for a rhino named Emilka. The black cat enjoys cuddling her massive friend and looks forward to seeing him every day.
Mia is one brave cat! Her rhino friend surpass her by hundreds of times. But the two are still friends. Emilka gets involved in harmless play with his small partner.
Actually, the black cat had a past unpleasant interaction with another rhino. When she was a kitten, a rhino bitten off the tip of her tail. The zookeepers expected Mia to become fascinated with the rhinos and avoid them forever.
However, the black cat proves that she has a sweet, heartwarming animal. With the rhinos in the enclosure, she is still a cuddly little sweetie. Her ability to love is unchanged by the childhood accident. Many of us, as humans, aren’t very good at this, are we?
Ami Vitale, a photographer and Nikon Ambassador, captured the cat and rhino cuddling moments during her visit to Safari Park Dvůr Králové. When she shared the video on the Internet, it quickly went viral. Millions of people around the world are inspired by the beautiful friendship of two animals.
