Louie is a cat that wandered up to my daughter's doorstep 3 weeks ago. He was matted, so skinny she felt his ribs through all that fur. She took him in, fed him, bathed him and he patiently let her cut and comb the mats out of his fur.
Now comes Bubba the pet rat. They are pals!!! I don't know how she does this but she is able to get animals to be friends.
