The beginning of a beautiful friendship between Jasper the Cat and Orlando the Chicken started when Jasper's became distraught after his longtime chicken pal, Roxy, passed away. It wasn’t long before Orlando snuggled up next to Jasper and the two became fast friends, unlikely though it may seem.

After a fox killed her chicks, lonely hen Gladys found solace in the friendship of farmhouse cat Snowy, and the two have been inseparable ever since.

The Lion and the Lamb: Born as the sickly runt in a set of triplets, Liab the lamb was not expected to survive. His owners brought him in the house to try and keep him warm, and Sox, their friendly, ginger tomcat, took to the lamb as his own and helped nurse him back to health.
