Nothing warms our heart more than when two unlikely species find a way to connect, and the bond between Ruth and Idgie (appropriately named after the friends in Fried Green Tomatoes) is no exception.

Ruth the Cat and Idgie the Dachshund have gone through a lot together. Abandoned at the end of someone’s driveway, they were rescued together by Hollywood Houndz in Lake Mary, Florida, where they continue to live side by side.

They’re so close that the idea of either of them being adopted without the other seems unfathomable. Ruth is disabled and can’t move from one place to another easily, but Idgie is always there to make sure she’s ok. See for yourself:
