This leopard met a Golden Retriever, and now they’re best friends.

It’s not every day that you see a cat chase a dog. Most of the time, it’s the other way around. But on the other hand, the cat in the video below is bigger than most. Salati is not a normal cat. Instead, he is a fierce leopard with an unusual best friend.

Tommy is a cute Golden Retriever, and the two animals, which are very different, love to chase and play with each other before settling down for a friendly hug. They first met at Glen Afric Country Lodge in South Africa. Since then, they haven’t been apart.

When Salati got to the center, he was just a cub. Since her mother died tragically, the poor thing found comfort in the most gentle and kind creature she could find: a dog. Tommy took the lost and confused cub under his wing immediately and gave her love and protection.

Salati and Tommy are still playing like two little kids, even though it didn’t take long for the tiny cub to turn into a big wild cat. “Wherever you see one, you’ll find the other behind it.” Richard Brooker, who takes care of Salati, said that. “They can’t live without each other, and since they both have a lot of energy, they work out together. It’s all fun and games; they love playing together.”
