Cat + Owl = BFFs?

Talk about an odd couple. Two years after we first shared a video of Fum the cat frolicking with Gebra the barn owl, the celebrity critters remain BFFs, with a shared website, YouTube channel, and Facebook page to prove it. 

What could explain the Spanish duo's unlikely affection? Some believe it's because they've been buddies almost since birth. They also share an instinct to prey on rodents.

Good luck trying not to "awww" over this adorable footage of Fum leaping and pawing at Gebra, who responds with a few pecks when playtime gets too rough.
