White Lion and Bengal Tiger Best Friends Since Childhood

Istanbul's Aslan Park is home to two big cats who have become best friends. A white lion called Pamuk and a Bengal tiger called Toby who are both only 18 months old have taken over our hearts with their adorable friendship. When they were just  four months old, the zookeepers attempted to separate the cubs, but the cubs had other plans. 

Daily News reports that Gökmen Aydın, the general par manager, said: "We wanted to separate them as both belong to different species. Then we realize uneasiness in animals. We started to think about the cause. When they got together later, we saw that they want to stay with each other. They became friends within four months," and we just can't help but awww.

Pamuk and Toby sleep most day, like all cats do, but they play together a lot and absolutely hate being separated for any reason whatsoever. "They sometimes sleep while hugging each other," added Aydın, and okay, que some more awws right about now. We wish them a long friendship even as they grow older and as much happiness as they have in general. Their story brought us immense happiness for sure. 

Check out pictures of Pamuk and Toby together below! And if you're interested in more happy friendships between species, take a look at this Pitbull and rescued fox cub who are total BFFs.

Ahem… Is this the cat you're looking for?

A large, wild cat - initially thought to be a tiger - has been seen roaming around France near Disneyland Paris, and local city officials are telling people to stay indoors.

It was first spotted in the town of Montevrain near some tennis courts - a very bouncy surface (just saying) - and footprints have been spotted which resemble those of an adolescent tiger, according to a French news site.


Dozens of troops and police officers are on the hunt, and authorities are also using helicopters with thermal imaging to track down the beast.

EuroDisney says it has no big cats in its park, and a nearby wild cat animal park says all animals are accounted for.
