Forget the owl and the pussycat: amazing video shows cute tabby Arthur kissing a dolphin!
AMAZING video footage of a cute cat kissing a dolphin is melting millions of hearts on Facebook.
The remarkable film, which you can view at the bottom of this page, shows a tabby called Arthur who has formed an affectionate bond with a pair of dolphins called Thunder and Shiloh.
The curious cat is seen nuzzling against one of the mammals while another splashes nearby – and the attraction between the creatures appears to be mutual.
Here at The Cheerful Times we reckon it’s one of the nicest bits of footage we’ve ever seen, so if you haven’t viewed it yet you are in for a treat.
The clip originally surfaced last year but it has been doing the rounds again during the run up to Christmas – and thousands of Brits have posted copies to friends on Facebook over the last few days.
It begins with Arthur sitting at the water’s edge as if he is waiting to greet his dolphin pals. When one of the creatures swims up, the cat gently extends its paw and the pair affectionately rub faces.
Excited human onlookers can be heard squealing with delight in the background.
One woman says: “Oh my God! Give him a kiss – look at that cat!”
The footage was originally filmed at a sea life centre in Islamorada in Florida in 1997.
