Unlikely Friendships by Jennifer S. Holland
(from the back of the book)
A leopard lies down with a cow. An elephant cuddles a sheep. A house cat curls up with an iguana. These are just a few of the 47 heartwarming stories of interspecies friendship, documented in amazing photographs, that challenge everything we think we know about animals and the lives they lead.
This is a book for animal lovers. And if anyone has ever asked how you can treat animals like family give them this book and they just might begin to understand. These are heartwarming stories about animals that would normally not be together (and sometimes would eat each other) getting together and showing all signs that they are friends. Some of them were introduced by humans to try to save orphaned animals but some of them found each other on their own. And those, for me, were the better stories. The photos that go with the stories are amazing and adorable. They are all short little stories so you can read one in a few minutes or you can get through the whole book in a rather short time. If you stop and want to pet every dog you pass on the street you are going to want to read this.
