Everyone needs a friend and that includes animals as well as humans. As a puppy, Travis was found in a ditch in Indonesia while Yoda the cat was found in an abandoned building.
Thinking that both animals could use some compassion and friendship, the rescuers of both animals put them together so they could comfort each other, and they both wound up becoming friends.
If dogs and cats can get along, perhaps there’s hope that Arabs and Israelis can find a way to get along as well. (We can always hope and let animals show us the proper way to deal with others.)
