Ginger Cat and Baby Deer Become Best Friends

A domestic zoo cat bonds with a baby deer at the Odessa Zoo in the Ukraine. According to Vitaly Tkach, the ginger kitty joins the deer in the enclosure and nuzzles right into the side of the deer. The two share a beautiful friendship. Not only do they rub each other’s faces, the kitty even gives his deer friend bathes.
