You know what we love? Unlikely friendships. There’s almost nothing cuter than a pair of pals that no one would suspect could get along teaming up to combine their powers for the greater cuteness. You see, to us, these friendships demonstrate that differences as silly as species really don’t mean anything to an animal.

Don’t get us wrong, there are always instances in which personalities can clash. Exercising caution when introducing both your furry and your feathered friends is always a good bet to ensure everyone’s safety. Once you’ve established that all parties are comfortable, moments of friendship will start to materialize. Before you know it, Polly Pug and Henrietta will be giggling about last night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory and making plans for a nap out by the mesquite tree that afternoon.
