If only we could be this friendly. The Capybara is the world’s biggest rodent. Forget about the word “rodent”, which has connotations, and think about a nice animal who, in this case, has formed a close friendship with an attractive grey tabby-and-white domestic cat.
Uhmmm, this picture oozes friendship and these are two very different animal species. Humans are all one species, yet are unable to live in harmony. The picture makes me think about that, which is why it is published on the site.
I am a complete sucker for what I call inter-species pictures. The range of species is indefinite. You see dolphins and cats communicating to deer and cats, horses and cats, chimpanzees and cats, iguanas and cats, bears and cars, dogs and cats etc., all living harmoniously together.
As Dorothy says,
Animals can teach us so much. If only we could learn.
Agreed, big time. It seems we are unable to learn. I think it is because we have created such a competitive society driven by self-interest with a smidgen of arrogance.
