Forgive (or embrace) the obvious pun, but... HOO says a cat and an owl can't be close friends?
Not Forbi, the feline in the following video, who is doing all she can to get the attention of an owl named Cleo.
The unlikely pals, whose footage has been shared more than 100,000 times on Facebook, are owned by Brazilian biologist Andre Costa.
They met at a young age and have been inseparable ever since, even if you wouldn't totally know it based on Cleo's reaction below. Come on, Cleo, give Forbi some love!
As unexpected as this friendship may seem, there are other examples of even more unexpected animal bondings.
