There was one day after some time of absence from YouTube when I finally logged in; and it was then I saw this really cute video of the friendship between a cat and a rat.
.

A cat that loves rat instead of chasing and playing with it? Of course it’s cute!
.

I always thought humans could learn things from animals. Not things like how to scratch your head with your leg, of course… more like, how to coexist in harmony with each other.
.

For example, in most (if not all countries), one can see the level of racism and how bad certain races are treated for, well, just being of that certain race. Some Chinese and Japanese people may still dislike each other (the hatred probably spawned from the Japanese occupation times), and many white and black people are often at odds with each other. How many people refused to vote for Obama simply because he was black? Even here in Malaysia, where we are proud to be multiracial, racism knows no bounds.
.

Humans also seem to be the only creature capable of cruelty… What other creature would cause war among themselves and kill each other? What other creature would actually rape its young due to uncontrollable lust? Of course, animals might actually fight its own kind, like a stray tomcat defending its territory from a trespassing cat or a pair of male moose dueling each other to win the heart of the female, but never would they actually kill the other if they win… merely drive them away. In the animal kingdom, it’s a eat-or-be-eaten world, a tale of survival, but some people do unspeakable acts just for amusement.
.

Sometimes, one couldn’t help but to feel sad.
.

But, different animals could actually be friends with each other, like the video (which was supposed to be the main topic of this post, really o_o). Even at my house, the three cats and one dog at my house (originally two cats and two dogs, one dog died of old age and we recently got another cat) live together in harmony. Well, not in full harmony yet (my cat likes to bully the newcomer, once she’s gotten used to her…), but there are never fights among them in my house.
.

Why can’t humans live inĀ  harmony with each other when animals of different species could?
.

Oh well, I guess it’s a question that I probably won’t get an answer to… not that I mind so much, anyway.
.

Regardless, I recommend this video to all animal lovers! :D
