Interspecies friendships are one of my favorite topics. Here we have a sweet-looking young donkey and a cute farm cat snuggling up to each other. There is a nice, close friendship going on here. For me, interspecies friendships show advanced emotional abilities. The most common interspecies frienships are between humans and cats and humans and dogs and there are many between cats and other animals such as ducks, owls, reptiles, horses etc.. It seems that there is almost no barrier in terms of species with whom the domestic cat can be friends.
