Nature never ceases to amaze.  Sometimes, the most unlikely pairings of animals emerge from the animal kingdom.  The latest pairing is between monkey and cat.  Sounds crazy right?

A monkey named Horace lost his mom at a young age in Zimbabwe.  The team at Twala Animal Sanctuary found the lonely monkey and gave him a new home.

Due to the sanctuary’s tiny staff, the team was forced to raise all the different animals together.  They didn’t know what to expect.  What ended up happening amazed them!
