When it comes to comforting each other, wild animals have proved so many times what they’re capable of. Even tough there are countless acts of kindness and unlikely friendships between animals of different species, it’s always heart-melting when a story like this came out.

For an orphaned animal life is anything but easy and for many of those little helpless creatures it’s impossible to overcome the lost of their moms. Unfortunately Buggy the kangaroo and Wally the wombat were forced to experience that feeling. Both orphans, they were brought to the Lindoway Farm in Australia at a very young age.

Fortunately, the little ones found comfort in each other and now they’re best friends and their story so inspiring. “We put them in a little area together and right from the start Buggy was just all over Wally,” their human mom told the Dodo. “Wally’s grazing on the ground and Buggy’s following him, just sucking on his ear the whole time. It was like, ‘What’s going on here?’ It was really weird. And every time we put them out together, that’s what they did.”

The unlikely pair is inseparable. They eat, play and even sleep together. “When we brought them back inside for pouch time, we’d set them up in two little separate pouches. I’d go away, come back 10 minutes later and Wally’s either in Buggy’s bag or Buggy’s sitting on Wally. It was just crazy because they’re not even the same species, yet they seem to really want to cuddle,” the duo’s mom said.

It’s so heart-warming to see love and kindness at its finest, just as these two inseparable friends show it.
