Meet Charles the female bearded dragon and Baby the cat, the lovely duo that proves that true friendship can flourish against all odds. While the cat could easily ʜᴜʀᴛ the beardie, he prefers keeping Charles safe and sound by cuddling with his Toothless instead.
The meow-nificent friendship began when their humans, Cheyenne and Isaac March of Virginia Beach, Virginia, decided to get married, merging their lives and their pets. The couple was initially concerned about how the two would get along, given that felines have an innate love for ʜᴜɴᴛɪɴɢ rodents and lizards. But on Feb. 19, the day the two met, it was quickly apparent that Baby thought Charles was the cat’s pajamas.
While the cat could very easily ʜᴀʀᴍ the beardie, he instead prefers keeping Charles safe and sound by cuddling with his Toothless instead. “I knew Baby would not ʜᴜʀᴛ Charles when he went right up to her, sniffed and rubbed up against her,” Cheyenne told.
“They go outside together for little strolls, watch birds together from the window, stare down our postman and then cuddle up to go for a nap – they’re absolutely adorable.
“I thought it was so cute when I first saw them together, I would never have guessed that they would be so close.”
The beardie is also right there for her kitty when her fluffy friend is sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ of thunder – Charles gently hugs the feline in order to calm him down. When the two are not snuggling, they enjoy each other’s company by playing outside and looking through the window and guarding their home. Though Charles might be a bit territorial – he has sᴛᴏʟᴇɴ Baby’s bed once, “poor kitty went to sleep in a box,” writes the owner on Instagram – they’re best friends for life!
Their unlikely friendship has now attracting thousands of fans across social media. This lovely and amazing duo certainly proves that true friendship can flourish against all odds.
