Cat protecting a little monkey from a large dog. Picture in public domain and cleaned up by PoC.
Comment: This is an interesting picture. It is very rare to see this. It looks as if the photo was taken in southeast Asia. The cat is a street cat and the monkey has formed a close relationship with the cat. The dog is large and threatening and probably a street dog. We don’t know how or why the cat and monkey formed their relationship. Sometimes Asians keep monkeys as pets on chains. Perhaps the monkey was released and found a parent in the cat and the cat found a companion. They hang onto each other for comfort, security (the monkey) and companionship. This is an interspecies relationship of which there are many on this site. We don’t know the outcome.
