This is not really a debate, but interesting. I am a recent foster mother to a Russian tortoise we call Harry. My cat, Penelope completely loves him. On his first day here she selected her favorite stuffed mouse and brought it to him to play with. When he's out walking around she follows him, lays down next to him, and nudges veggies over his way while he's eating.
Well, Harry is a bit ill and out having a medical procedure done. He'll be back in a couple of days, but Penelope is freaking. She is pacing back and forth in front of his cage, keeps standing on her hind legs to look in, and then looks at me for an explanation. I don't speak cat.
I am wondering if any of you have interspecies friendship stories to share.
