Dogs and cats playing together -- does it get any cuter than this?

While the animal kingdom is replete with amazing and adorable friendships, there's probably none so contrary to expectations than when a dog and a cat get along.

And in this video, a golden retriever and a British shorthair cat, both four months old at the time, cuddle up like a pair of true-blue pet pals.

The short clip was uploaded to YouTube by Ana Quieroz in 2010. It's totally heartwarming, but by no means the first time that dogs and cats have been caught being affectionate on camera.

    The cat is named Sonic and the dog is named Lola. It was taken while we were pet-sitting Lola for an Army Captain friend who was deployed to Afghanistan at the time. Lola is a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix, and Sonic is a stray from Fort Benning, GA. They are truly best friends.
