Interspecies friendship has long been recorded in history. This is especially true in different kinds of animals living under one roof.
Spending all day together inevitably creates a special bond among the animals. We’ve seen accounts of dogs and cats treating each other likе family.
Faulconer rеscuеd Huey nine years ago, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Huey is very protective of his mom, so Faulconer was surprised when he started showing interest in befriending Sassafras instead of seeing the curious deer as a thrеat.
“Huey was a little confused at first, and definitely cautious,” Faulconer told The Dodo. “I would just talk to them both and make sure they both felt safe. Slowly, they just started talking over the fence!”
Watch Huey and Sassafras’ first meeting:
Sometimes, Sassafras even brings her two babies along to visit. “It’s absolutely adorable,” Faulconer said. “I love watching them.”
For Huey and Sassafras, it doesn’t matter that they’re different species. What truly matters is dependability, kindness and, well, being tall enough to chat over the fence.
