In Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan, Momo the cat and Moko the rabbit like to take a walk with their human every day. (Youth.cn) They are inseparable. The neighbors call them “Brother and Sister.”

Momo watched Moko grow from a tiny baby rabbit and is very protective of him. When the human takes a walk outside, they tag along. These two buddies have brought a lot of fun to the neighborhood.

Sometimes, they get a visit from another cat that lives nearby according to Youth.cn. Moko is a bit shy, and always follows his best friend Momo for that extra companionship.

Oskar takes a daily walk in the building with his best furiend Klaus. As soon as the door is open, Oskar goes charging into the hall and even does his famous spin move.

“Despite being blind, Oskar can navigate to the end and back,” said their hoomans.

Oskar was born 100% blind, but the kitty doesn’t think he is any different. He absolutely loves life. Klaus is also a rescue who became Oskar’s best forever friend.

We know that cats walk very quietly, almost undetectably, especially when they are prowling towards their prey or in our cases, their toy or our legs.

Did you know that cats are the most inefficient walkers out of many different animals including dogs, horses, penguins or even humans? They use every single muscle in their legs very hard when they stealthily creep along, recovering little of the potential energy as their leg rebounds for another stride.  This of course allows them to be extra sneaky and quiet to sneak up on their prey, but uses relatively more energy than we would for the same movement.

The below link will show you a study done by Duke University on the subject of Cat’s Stride.
