A video posted on Twitter shows a moment of complicity between two very different species. In general, you don't really expect a cat and an iguana to be friends. However, Igu Senpai the reptile and an adorable ginger feline are.
Both live on the island of Kyushu, Japan, and are members of a big family with many animals. In addition to the cat and the iguana, the family also have 3 dogs, 2 Hermann's turtles, a snake and several birds, including parakeets.
The 7 year old male iguana and the cat get along very well and are very close to each other. The feline also sees his friend as a kind of "scratching post" that gives him a pleasant sensation when he rubs against his scales.
A beautiful friendship
The cat has been rubbing himself on the iguana for some time, and it doesn't seem to bother Igu Senpai too much. Watching the video which was posted on Twitter, we even have the impression that the iguana lets him do it willingly and takes advantage of this proximity.
Other images have been posted on the same Twitter account showing the iguana interacting with other animals in the house, including a beautiful blue parakeet that often lands on Igu Senpai’s head.
The cat is not Igu Senpai's only friend, but he doesn't seem to mind "sharing" with the rest of the household.
