Cat And Orangutan Hit It Off

Hector Duarte Jr. - All Headline News Staff Reporter

Panama City Beach, FL (AHN) – Tondalayo, a 45-year-old Sumatran Orangutan, and T.J., a stray tabby cat are inseparable since being introduced last year.

Stephanie Willard, Education Director at Zoo World in Panama City Beach, says Tondalayo was depressed after his companion died two years ago.

Willard stumbled onto the cat and decided to introduce the two. Zookeepers have named the cat T.K., for “Tondalayo’s Kitty.” They play together, as well as sleeping and cuddling every night.

They have been together round the clock for over a month.

Willard says, "It's an unbelievable match. This has worked out a lot better than I expected it to. She's got brighter eyes now. He's brought a lot of light to her. He's perked up Tonda more than anything."
