Interspecies friendships never cease to amaze. From a cat mothering ducks to play time between a dog and a fox, interspecies relationships warm our hearts while teaching us a bit about compassion. If different species can get along at times, even those that would have a normal predator-prey relationship, then perhaps we too can set aside our differences and come to love other species as well.

The most common interspecies friendships most of us bear witness to occur in the home environment between companion animals. Yet, not all of our furry friends develop a close bond. Some are friendly with each other while others despise their housemates. And so, it is still always quite a sight to see when a dog and cat truly hit it off, like Elena Chaplinskaya’s pup Bulka and cat Plato.

Bulka came into Chaplinskaya’s household at a young age and no one really expected Plato to really grow to love him as his human family would. However, to their great surprise, Plato took Bulka under his wing like his own baby. Their friendship has since blossomed into a deep, heartwarming relationship, and they go pretty much everywhere together — they’re totally inseparable!

Take a look at the photos below, taken by Chaplinskaya, to witness their beautiful friendship.
