Dove at first sight

A sweet friend of mine has reminded me of a great many stories recently and this is one of them. You might know it as it first appeared a couple of years ago. The story behind the photo goes like this:

"It's a tale straight out of Disney – an abandoned baby monkey, close to death, is revived by the love of a bird.

The 12-week-old macaque was rescued on Neilingding Island, in Goangdong Province, China, after being abandoned by his mother.

Taken to an animal hospital, he was weaned back to physical health but still showed little appetite for life.

It was not until a fellow patient, a white pigeon, took him under her wing and showed him love and affection that he perked up.

Now the two are inseparable, say staff."

I've also seen this photo posted under the title "If they can overcome their differences, why can't we??"

Anyway... I wonder how the two are doing today??

Just inspiring, like many stories involving animals... This one reminds me of the one about the hippo and the tortoise, ever heard about that one? Anyway, thanks again for another beautiful post. Have a great weekend...
Yes, actually saw the one about the hippo and tortoise in an article also featuring this couple above under the title "odd couples". Just gorgeous these odd little friendships!
