The Owl and the Pussycat

Edward O. Wilson is famous for (among much else) his "biophilia" hypothesis--an unconscious, deep love that humans have for other living beings. But why should it be just for humans? Strange and unexpected animal pairs have become an Internet staple: a deer and a gosling, for instance. Owen the hippo and Mzee the tortoise now seem to have become their own industry. In this latest example, one would be hard put to describe the connection as anything other than friendship. As is often the case in such stories, very little information is provided, but the Catalan pop music provides at least a geographical reference. (Sorry about the ad, a sure sign that Fum and Gebra are on their way to Internet stardom.)
