    Cat comforts orangutan

    http://snipurl.com/nf9u

    PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Tondalayo, a 45-year-old Sumatran orangutan, and T.J., a stray tabby cat, became an inseparable duo after a zoo employee introduced them late last year.
    --------------------------------
    Zookeepers named the cat, T.K. - short for "Tondalayo's Kitty."

    They play together, cuddle and sleep together each night. They have been together constantly for more than a month.

    Thanks for adding the picture, Mabel!

    There was a whole group that I tried to add, but didn't use photobucket and couldn't get the link to work.

    If any of you want to see the rest, go to http://www.newsherald.com/, look for photo gallery on the right, click on Tonda and T.K.
