Can cats and birds get along? Absolutely! And these two prove it in the sweetest way.
Fum is an adorable black cat and Gebra is a beautiful barn owl, and they are the best of friends. They live in a backyard in Spain and “like hanging out together and eating mices,” according to their Facebook page.
Fum means “smoke” in Catalan (a language used in Spain) and Gebra means “frost.” Perfect names! Don’t you think Gebra looks like she has frosty highlights on her feathers?
Can’t see the video? Watch it on YouTube here.
The most amazing part of this video to me is how they play! Gebra swoops in very close to Fum and he swats a little. The owl doesn’t seem concerned about getting hurt and the cat is clearly treating his friend more gently than if he was out to get him.
Then, when Gebra lands near Fum later, you can see that they really do like to just hang out together! Just a couple buddies enjoying a nice day.
