Unusual animal friendships are always adorable, and this friendship between Rupert, a rescued wild fennec fox, and William, a big black cat at the International Primate Rescue shelter in South Africa, is no different.
Volunteers at the shelter captured video footage of the two best friends being reunited after spending some time apart. Rupert was hand-raised since he was 4 weeks old with William at his side. Rupert’s clearly very excited to have his friend back at his side!
