Friendship comes in all forms, gender, nationality, religion, or species.
Despite their obvious difference, this Bengal tiger cub Hunter and a German Pointer dog Chelsea has become the bff.
Chelsea is just 3 weeks old, and she and Hunter are both in the protection of the Pretoria Wildlife Sanctuary.
The tiger cub, was unfortunately left by his mom just a few days after his birth.
Sadly, his mother began behaving agg.r.e.s.sively against him, which was the reason that they were separated.
“We think Hunter was born at a period when the female was affected in some manner because she re.j.e.c.t.e.d him,” said Anthea Michaletos, a sanctuary worker.
These two tiny boys are now buddies thanks to Anthea. “When I bring Chelsea out in the mornings, she will rush to his kennel and welcome him,” she noted.
“They play with each other and fi.gh.t sometimes; Chelsea pulls him over, and he jumps on him.”
It is highly beneficial for him to have a four-legged pal since he can play and live in the same manner as he would with some other litter mate.
He has been the only cub there, and having a playmate is very essential to him.”
Friendship is so vital to the puppy that he becomes upset when they have to be separated during the day.
This unusual pair spends a lot of time playing together under the watchful eye of the caregiver.
Unfortunately, according to Anthea, this friendship may come to a stop in a few months when Hunter becomes 6 months, at which point Chelsea will be in risk.
Chelsea, on the other hand, has shown no signs of distress thus far, and their beautiful connection may continue.
