We know that the “cats and dogs hate each other” myth has been busted time and time again…but what about a cat befriending a dragon-like lizard?!

Charles is a bearded lizard–who’s female, by the way–who has become good friends with Mr. Baby the white cat. One would think that the kitty would consider a lizard prey, but against all odds, these two prefer to be friends rather than enemies.

According to Bored Panda, the beardie snuggles Mr. Baby to comfort him when it thunders. They also like to play together inside and outside of their Johnstown, Pennsylvania home!

Need proof? Check out pictures of this unlikely friendship:
