Newborn Yola's mother, Nadiri, had some issues early on with nurturing Yola, who had to be bottle-fed and cared for by Woodland Park Zookeepers. But then Nadiri began to warm up to Yola, getting closer and closer by the day. Although this type of early detachment is not totally uncommon, the cameras at the zoo were able to capture their progression on video in a very tender moment.

'Idgie' the Dog and 'Ruth' the Paralyzed Cat Have a Special Bond

'Idgie' the Dog and 'Ruth' the Paralyzed Cat Have a Special Bond

This video by the Orlando Sentinel quickly debunks the idea that dogs and cats do not get along. "Idgie" the dog and "Ruth" the cat are the best of friends (Yes, they were named after the two main characters in Fried Green Tomatoes!). They were found together abandoned at the end of a driveway. They were taken by Animal Control and have been inseparable ever since. Both Idgie and Ruth were adopted by Hollywood Houndz, and have become local celebrities of sorts, with customers going in just to see them or bring them Christmas gifts. Sounds like a happy "tail" to us! View Now
