Cats love others almost as much as they love themselves. Since cats can get lonely if left by themselves at home, many people get another pet to keep each other company. In St. Petersburg, Russia, Ekaterina Kuraeva decided to get a companion for her cat Nice.

Unlike other cat owners who might get another cat, Ekaterina adopted a meerkat from the Moscow Zoo. Curiously, Nice and the meerkat named Surya, get along amazingly well. That just shows that cats will treat other animals better than their owners.
