    Watching animals interacting is never time badly spent and can teach us a great deal about the animal kingdom. Strange though it might seem, horses can become very attached to cats - one of the story lines in Aunts Aren't Gentlemen by PG Wodehouse involves a racehorse Potato Chip, who refuses to run if he's separated from a cat he adores.

    A video recently shared on Instagram shows a buckskin horse and a red-haired cat hanging out together at a horse arena.

    Perhaps the feline came to visit its horse buddy and the latter saw the cat needed some grooming.

    When the horse started washing the cat with its tongue, the cat did not look too happy but remained calm and waited patiently.

    Do you think the cat appreciated the horse's attentions?

      I Got Your Back! Cat and Lizard Hang Together Just Like Besties

      Sometimes, animals cannot stand each other - like cats and dogs, elephants and spiders, crocodiles and anacondas, scorpions and everything - and this instinctive dislike militates against the two species forming bonds of close friendship. However, in some cases, they are so different that you cannot even predict their reaction to one another.
