    Smile Orangutan and tiger cub are best friends -- awwww!

    In the wild they would be deadly enemies. In captivity they are the best of friends.



    Two Sumatran tiger cubs and two baby orang-utans, each pair abandoned by their mother soon after birth, have become inseparable playmates in the nursery room of an animal hospital in Indonesia. Nia and Irma happily snuggle up to the cubs in a way that five-month-old orang-utan sisters would never normally contemplate

    In Parrot Jungle Island, Miami there is an orangutan and a monkey who seem to share a very similar relationship. Sweet!

    I saw this on CNN. It's so sweet that it makes my teeth hurt. How could those mommies leave those precious babies?

    Look at how they love each other. Maybe the Mommies didn't have a choice, maybe they were murdered or were slaves, or tried to kill their newborns because they thought there was a Dr. Doolittle Mengele on staff, so some other hairless two-legged ones separated them. We won't even try to talk about the Daddies. Who knows. I sure as hell don't know. It's bothersome, to be sure...

    But it is still wonderful and sweet to see this love and bonding. They will be friends for life, I hope their human masters can see to it they they are not separated. Let them receive happiness by giving and recieving love, god damn fucking everything. That's all there is. Motherfuckers, I just happened to wake up on the right side of the coffin this morning.

    I saw this awhile ago in the newspaper and it blessed my heart. This is so special and beautiful. They're adorable, especially together.
