The cat, named Muschi, and the bear, named Maeuscchen, in these photos are lifelong friends. While it may be an unlikely friendship, it began eight years ago when the 40-year-old Asian bear and the cat first met and now the cat can’t stand to be apart from her friend. The pair was recently split up temporarily and the distraught cat was soon spotted sitting outside the bear’s cage pining for her friend. Once reunited, they were very happy as they cuddled after greeting each other.
