Sometimes friends are found in the most unexpected places.  That is the story of Jo Jo and Alan.

In 2011, Jo Jo was rescued by Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand from a horrible situation where he lived in a cage at a restaurant and was used by patrons as a prop for photos.

Thankfully, Jo Jo was able to go to a safe place where he could be cared for and heal.  Recently, a stray  black and white cat appeared and seemed to have also found a home to call his own.

On their website the rescue organization wrote:

Jo Jo the rescued long-tailed macaque here at the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand Wildlife Rescue Centre has found himself a new best friend, in the form of Alan the stray domestic cat. Little Alan appeared in the newlands area a few weeks ago and has taken up residence in the macaque field, he shares food with the macaques. Although this is not an ideal situation and something we do not encourage, Alan is unharmed and Jo Jo seems to love him, so we have decided to leave them together.

Looks like they are quite the pair.
