List Rules Vote up the most precious animal friendships that make you feel all the "creature comforts."

Love doesn't have a color, shape or size, and these cute animal couples on Instagram prove it. Whether you're a pup who's had an unfortunate run in with a bee and needs a little pick-me-up or an endangered animal rescued from the wild, each of these animals has found the perfect buddy. 

The best animal friendships of Instagram transcend expectations. Dogs, traditionally trained to hunt foxes, make said orange fluff-balls their surrogate siblings instead. Raccoons step inside and cuddle with house pets, while chimpanzees adopt not-yet-vicious leopard cubs. Cats go on grand adventures with puppies and cold-blooded critters find comfort in each other's warmth. Unlike humans in US politics, odd animal couples somehow manage to find common ground. Perhaps the rest of us should take a page from their book.

These adorable animal Instagram friendships will warm you up on even the coldest days and beg the question: why can't we all just get along? Vote up the most unlikely, yet most winsome animal buddies!
