We can learn so much from these 2 wonderful animals! Makes me think of Tarra & Bella from The Elephant Sanctuary!

I'm glad to see that Charlie was rescued before his "adoptive" family chose to serve him up for lunch like his mom. It's amazing the bonds animals can develop with each other when they need to.

This is a great story and very touching but I think they should be aloud to come inside and be treated as pets not as strays or as wild animals what if some one ran off with them. Also I remember when I had my female english cocker spaniel Lady her and my female tordisshell calico cat mix named Teddy had a great friendship. Lady would let Teddy ride around the house on her back. Teddy would jump onto Lady's back and sit there and jump off when they got to where Teddy wanted to go in the house. But sometimes Teddy would not get off of Lady's back and she rode around on her back just for fun. Also There use to be this man that would walk around town with a dog on a leash, a cat on a leash, a cockitail on one shoulder and a rat on the other. I finally asked him one day if they ever fought he said they are all rescues from animal shelters and that no none of them ever fight they all get along perfectly well. I was suprised he said he could even control them on their walks. He said alot of people asked him those qeustions and alot of people stared at him when he walked by. I don't ever see him around town any more now I don't know if he moved or what but that was just one great and interesting person.

I was under the impression that they are good swimmers. They have webbed feet.
