Otter Befriends An Orange Tabby Cat And They’re Now Inseparable BFFs

There is nothing more adorable than an otter, except for maybe an otter and his best friend.

There are all kinds of unusual animal pairings in this world, and each one is just as precious as the last.

The two spend their days together, just hanging out and having fun. But what has really captured the hearts of their more than 62K followers, is their cuddles.

The two will often spend their time together engaging in very sweet cuddle time, precious moments that their owner, Mako, will often capture on camera.

Look at these two cuties below:

Aren’t they just the cutest pair? It is no wonder that they have many admirers online. But while you might find their photos together quite precious, it’s the videos that will really pull at your heartstrings, particularly the one that features a playful Sakura enjoying an afternoon nap with her bestie.

Saruka, who is the big spoon in the video, shows how much she absolutely loves Mochi. He doesn’t seem as impressed, showing off the sleepiness in his eyes before putting his head back down and going back to sleep.
