Happy Valentine's Day!
Let's celebrate with a series of pictures of a heartwarming friendship between a baby rhino and a rescue cat. Nandy the baby rhino and Mewie the rescue cat live at the Rhino Orphanage in Limpopo, South Africa. The caretaker for the orphaned rhinos rescued Mewie from a township when he was a kitten and nursed him back to health.
Then came Nandi. She arrived at the Rhino Orphanage when she was only two months old. Her mother was tragically lost to poaching and was left wandering alone for days. The little, orphaned rhino was so hungry she ate sand which caused damage to her tummy. She was saved and taken into the Rhino orphanage.
The friendship between Nandi and Mewie began when the caretaker started to sleep in the same room as Nandi. Mewie didn't want to be left out, so he curled up on the bed with them. It didn't take long before their curiosity turned into a friendship. Both grew up without a mother, but now they are each other's family.
They are so fond of each other they always want to be in each other's company. What Mewie and Nandi really enjoy is their twice-daily walks together. When one of them runs, the other one always tags along.
Though Mewie purrs and Nandi snorts and squeaks, they share the same language of love.
