If anybody out there had any lingering doubts that animals can remember their friends, this video will quickly eradicate them.

This family had a pet squirrel. While having a wild animal as a pet is never a good idea, they eventually did the right thing and released him back into the wild where he belongs. Clearly doing well, the little guy would pop back in from time to time in order to visit his best buddy … the family cat!

The pair clearly enjoy one another’s company, rolling around playfully and wrestling like two toddlers on a playground. Watching these two, we can’t help but be reminded of the deep social bonds that animals form, no matter what species they come from. Once again, we all could take a lesson from these animals that it doesn’t matter where you come from or what you look like. A friend is a friend.
