You are proudly a self-proclaimed cat person, and for good reason: cats are clever, curious, intelligent, and independent. There’s no doubt that the people who love them truly appreciate these qualities–and probably possess them, themselves! For us cat-lovers, there are few feelings as gratifying as getting affection from a cat because you know full well that it’s earned, and that makes you feel extra-special.

But we humans aren’t the only ones who can have this special bond with a cat. As it turns out, some other animals find kinship in having kitty companions as well. Here are 11 adorable, interspecies friendships with felines that will make your heart melt!


1. This feline and fawn can’t get enough of each other…

This cluster of pictures prove that this relationship isn’t just a fling–they’re really pals!

This cat and deer are very fawned of each other


2. And–dare we say it?!–dogs and cats can love each other, too!  Not even a dog could resist that fluffy kitty pillow!
