It feels like it’s been too long since we last visited the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship. Thank goodness ZooBorns posted about this awesomely cute and fuzzy pair of baby bird friends at the Kirkleatham Owl Center in Redcar, North East England.
Meet Larch, a Long-eared owlet, and Chop-suey, a White-crested Runner duckling. They’re both only three weeks old and currently inseparable.
Initially there were a dozen duck eggs in the Center’s incubator, but only one hatched, producing little Chop-suey. Although the chick was content with human company, he was not happy being left alone. Larch the Owl had been by himself there so staff put the two together and they instantly snuggled up and fell asleep!
They won’t be able stay together for much longer due to their differing needs as they develop,” said a spokesperson at the Center, “but while they are still very small we are more than happy for them to enjoy their time together.”
If those four photos didn’t immediately incapacitate you with their cuteness, click here to watch a short video of Larch and Chop-suey cuddling up together.
“Where do you want to go today, my feline friend?”
Meet Rudi Saldia and his cat MJ. This awesome pair of pals enjoys nothing more than cycling around Philadelphia together with MJ happily riding on Rudi’s shoulders. Rudi films their bike rides with his HD HERO2 GoPro camera and, we’d be remiss not to mention, sports a rather dashing mustache.
Last year Rudi posted a video of himself and MJ entitled My Cat Can Ride A Bike Better Than You Can. Click here to watch even more videos of Rudi and MJ.

Illustrator Itzel Najera (aka NEWS) and illustrator and animator DOZEREK, both of whom are based in Mexico, recently collaborated on an awesome 3D design project entitled Abismo (Abyss), which features an adorable pair of characters who appear to have found themselves inside the belly of a whale.
We’re crossing our fingers and toes in hopes that these characters might turn into actual toys some day. We’d love to add them to our collection and have no doubt that there are many other people out there who would happily do the same.
Pedro T. Predator and his friend Abi (aka deviantARTist Rex-equinox) cosplay in awesome Predator and Xenomorph costumes. In their world these two creatures aren’t enemies, they’re friends. The sort of friends who accompany and support each other during a visit to a tattoo and body piercing parlour.
Check out Pedro T. Predator’s deviantART gallery to view more great photos like these.

This is the most popular post on Geyser of Awesome in 2012! Surely it’s because if Scops Owls and German Pointers can live together in peace, can’t we all?

We love this gif for its pure McPhee-style weirdness, for the inclusion of a red fez, and because, as much as we like it, we never get to see enough people dancing whilst wearing raw turkeys on their heads. Usually they only show up in our dreams.
If you would like to recreate this moment on Thanksgiving, you should use our Clumsy Cook Turkey Mask as a more sanitary alternative to an actual turkey.

Here’s a happy little dose of interspecies friendship to make your day a little more awesome: Meet Puppet the cat and his pal Puff the bearded dragon. While it’s possible that Puff simply enjoys Puppet’s warmth, that cuddly cat seems pretty darn fond of his handsome lizard friend.
Carol Smith from Australia photographed this cheeky monkey hitching a ride on what is either an extraordinarily friendly or distracted deer at the Melaka Zoo in Malaysia.
This monkey has got the right idea. When it gets really hot outside and walking around becomes a sweaty chore, we wish we had friendly deer to ride as well. We probably wouldn’t both to sit up either.
Less talk, more lazy monkeys (and accommodating deer)!
