Animal Odd Couple: Curious Cat Plays with Dolphin

04/12/2011

We've seen curious cats play with their food, moths, iPads and even Crocodiles ...but a dolphin?! Srsly?

Check out one of the most improbable - and adorable - animal pairings you've ever seen! The folks on a tour boat certainly got a shock when their cat, Thunder, started making friends with a couple of gregarious dolphins. These unlikely friends are clearly smitten with each other - but what do you think is really happening here? Is the cat indeed nuzzling and "marking" the dolphin as some have theorized, or is it simply a case of opposites attracting? 

Either way - enjoy this darling interspecies connection!
