Cat Comforts Grieving Orangutan at Zoo

From -- "Tondalayo, a 45-year-old Sumatran orangutan, and T.J., a stray tabby cat, became an inseparable duo after a zoo employee introduced them late last year.

Stephanie Willard, Education Director at Zoo World in Panama City Beach, said Tondalayo was depressed since losing her mate two years ago."

"When the sweet-natured orange cat wandered into Willard's life, the solution became clear."

"They play together, cuddle and sleep together each night. They have been together constantly for more than a month.

"He's perked up Tonda more than anything," Willard said."

    Animals are such wonderful creatures - truly a gift from God. Pets always seem to know when you need some extra attention, extra love, extra comfort. It seems that you always read about kittens being paired with primates and the kittens become like their babies or their pets. That always puts a smile on my face. Great story!!
