We all need friends. A friend is someone who you like, you enjoy spending time together, and you support each other. Many of us watched the TV series Friends that told the story of a group of friends. Some friendships make sense, you have shared interests, or you grew up together. Other friendships are harder to understand, like a cat and a dog or a chipmunk and a cat.

cat Yes, a chipmunk and a cat have become friends!

The chipmunk had wandered into a yard and ran into the cat who lives there! _GoldGuy_, a reddit user, posted pictures of his cat meeting the chipmunk for the first time.

 The tiny chipmunk seems to understand and hops up on the cat, and they can see each other eye to eye!

 It is soon clear that the two of them are going to be friends – good friends! The chipmunk even seems to try to make a comfy nest in the fur of the cat (who doesn’t appear to mind at all!)

Aww, they are BFF’s! Perhaps there is a lesson in these pictures for humans.

 Despite all the innate differences and natural tendencies of these two animals, they became friends.

All it took was a simple gesture for this beautiful friendship to start to grow! Share away, people!
