People think that cats aren’t friendly because they’re known as cold animals who don’t feel love and affection, so they don’t believe they are friendly. However, that’s not true. People who have cats say they’re good at cuddling with their loved ones, but that doesn’t mean they always do.
When it comes to animals from different species meeting up, Mother Nature never fails to amaze us, that’s for sure. That might be too much for even me, though. But that’s what happened at this zoo in the Czech Republic.
They can form a bond with both their humans and their pets. They also seem to have a soft spot for rhinos.
Recently, the Safari Park Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic found that cats lived with black rhinos and were very close to each other. It was the idea of a zookeeper named Jan árek who came up with it about 20 years ago. When Jan árek came up with putting a cat named Koka in the rhinos’ enclosure, he did it to make their lives more interesting and keep rats and mice away from the zoo.
Everyone was afraid to see what would happen, but everything worked out. After a few days, Koka and the rhinos started to get along better. The small cat really liked snuggling with the big animals.
All but one of the rescue cats was put in the rhino enclosure for over 20 years. This is what happened to Mia, the cat: A young rhino named Jasiri ripped off the top of her tail. But Mia, the cat, hasn’t been angry with her big rhino friends. She forgives them and still loves them a lot, even though they did something bad to her. After this, the zookeepers closely watch the situation to make sure the cats are okay. Today, the three black cats living with the rhinos are 12-year-old Dinks, 10-year-old Mia, and 5-year-old Tilly.
Seeing the cat and rhino together makes everyone happy. They both look very happy. Watch the video here! I hope you share this video with your friends and family.
