CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — A Chicago pet owner shared video of the very unlikely friendship between his family’s turtle and their newest pet — a blind kitten.
The video, which has been posted to YouTube by Josh Couwenhoven, shows the blind kitten, Rye, feeling her way around the room while the turtle, Lucy, watches.
The kitten locates the turtle and then cautiously follows her around the room, being careful not to get too close.
Rye eventually grows bolder and feels out Lucy’s shape with her paw.
She loses track of her reptilian cohort a couple times, but is soon once again able to locate the other animal using her sense of smell.
