In life, friends come in all shapes and sizes. We often see stories of bonded pairs of animals of the same species who are friends. But there is something magical about interspecies friendships that makes our hearts skip a beat. Sometimes I feel like there is so much we can learn from our animal friends, and Champy and Morris are two of my favorite four-legged best buds there are.
We often see dogs becoming best buds with horses, but cats can form very strong bonds with horses for several reasons. And that's mainly because their temperament and logic are much more similar than people realize. And, if anyone is proof of that, it's certainly Champy and Morris!
Their Facebook page tells us that Champy and Morris are:
Jennifer shared the following on Bored Panda about Champy and Morris:
"I went into an animal shelter one day and Morris was sitting in a cage staring at me, he wouldn’t take his eyes off me, I was his chosen human. He was born at the shelter and was about 9 months old when I took him home. I still can’t believe no one wanted him, he’s the friendliest cat you’ll ever meet. I already had Champy, who was about 12 months old."
"When I introduced them, Champy instantly fell in love with Morris and knew they’d be best friends. Morris, however, took a few days to convince probably because of Champy’s size, but after a few days of Champy hanging out with him, and not taking no for an answer, Morris jumped up on his back and they’ve been inseparable ever since."
Check out this super adorable video of Champy and Morris where they were featured as part of The Dodo's Odd Couples series:
