A Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ ginger cat has bonded with an unusual friend who is over 10 times bigger–an orphaned rhino, but friendship knows no bounds.
A ginger cat named Mewie was discovered wandering a town when he was a small kitten. Jamie Traynor, a caretaker of orphaned rhinos, Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ the cat from loneliness. She took care of his health and raised him into an adult ginger cat.
Nandi, the little white rhino, was just 2 months old when she was found all alone back in December. Her Mother was tragically ʟᴏsᴛ to ᴘᴏᴀᴄʜɪɴɢ and she was left wondering alone for a few days. The little orphaned rhino was lonely and began to eat sand which caused ᴅᴀᴍᴀɢᴇ to her tummy until she was sᴀᴠᴇᴅ and taken into the orphanage by the Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation (WHWF).
Jamie became the primary caregiver for Nandi. “She has settled in very well and as part of her routine she goes for a walk twice a day,” Jamie told. And during this time, Nandi meets Mewie and the three go for a walk and play together every day.
Mewie didn’t develop any fear of such a large, majestic beast, in fact, he and Nandi became best friends, spending as much time together as possible at the orphanage.Their friendship started when all three of them started sleeping in the room with Nandi. Jamie watched the two of them as they interacted, Nandi was simply curious about the large new animal and quickly became fond of getting to know him. Mewie is really a brave cat and has no fear of Nandi even though she is at least ten times older than him.
Jamie said that they both like to go for walks together in the afternoon and that when the two run, the other always follows. They walk a long way so that Nandi can comfortably roam and exercise, but usually Mewie will get tired when walking for too long. Now the two of them have become inseparable friends.
