Often times when a cat spots a small animal, that small animal winds up wishing it had never met the cat. However, a cat named Rin-chan recently met a tiny green tree frog, and his reaction to the amphibian is surprisingly friendly.

Rin-chan carefully pet the frog with its front paw, taking care not to harm the frog in any way. If a cat can learn to respect other forms of life, you have to wonder what’s taking people so long to do so as well?
