The Daily Treat: Cheetah Cub & Puppy Become Best Friends at San Diego Zoo

Originally posted 06/12/2014 06:00PM

Here's some more definitive proof we can all, indeed, get along: A 6-week-old cheetah cub named Ruuxa has befriended a 7-week-old Rhodesian ridgeback puppy named Raina.

After the cheetah, born at the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park, was rejected by his mother, the keepers helped nurse the youngster. And then they found him a friend.

"Because the cheetah was by himself and did not have any siblings, we wanted him to have a companion immediately,” animal training manager Susie Ekard said in the zoo's blog. "They definitely like to play, and when they take naps together, they often will snuggle up together for that warmth and closeness." (See them in action in the video below.)
