At first, it looks like a monkey is trying to suffocate cat—but then, the unexpected unfolds

Are monkeys and cats best of friends? Watching this video of a monkey lovingly grooming a feline would suggest so.

Snickers’s body is loosened, her eyes are still, and not a single anxious purring can be discerned from her as she receives total euphoria from her friend Bugs, a Java Macaque, who tends to her lush fur.

There’s no monkey business happening here when Bugs is busy and working hard to groom Snickers, not even for his human mommy when she caresses the cat. As soon as Snickers moves her head slightly away to play, Bugs pulls her right back in place.

Watch the special interaction between Bugs and Snickers in the video.
