A Siamese Cat Bonded With A Horse And Now They're BFFs.
When you think of two animals that would make great friends, a horse and a cat simply don't come to mind. But then again, that's what happened when Comet, a five-year-old Connemara Pony, and Louis, a six-year-old Siamese cat met. The two have formed a bond that seems to go beyond friendship, or any other kind of 'ship' that we can define by our lowly human standards. So, as far as feline-equestrian friendship goes, these two really know what life is all about. It's rare to see them apart, and their owner, horse trainer, Emma Massingale, is in awe of their unbelievable friendship.
It all started when Louis, a nosy Siamese cat, started following Emma Massingale around.
Louis eventually went into the stable where Emma looked after one of her horses, Comet. Little did she know that this would lead to the most amazing encounter, and friendship between two animals from different species.
Emma, who's a professional equestrian trainer in North Devon, England, had Comet for three years.
Until now, the horse had never had a friend, at least, not quite like the one he discovered through Louis. At first, it was Emma who would ride on Comet's back. Then she'd tap her leg and Louis would hop on too.
The only thing that Emma had to do was tap on Comet's back and something amazing happened.
Emma claims that Louis doesn't need a whole lot of encouragement to get on Comet's back. It all starts with Louis just hanging out in the stables, and one jump later, Louis and Comet are ready to set off to their next adventure.
Louis has a strong personality, and has practically claimed Emma's home as his own.
After she took him in from his original owner, who was a friend of Emma's going through a bad breakup, Louis has been taking over everything in her life, including her horse, Comet, who seems quite happy with the arrangement too.
Comet the pony and Louis the cat, aren't a bunch of homebodies all the time.
They actually love to go on mini adventures together and walk along a narrow path in the woods. It seems like these two have the perfect symbiotic relationship. One rides, while the other does all the walking.
