10-week-old cheetah cub, Emmett and 7-week-old puppy buddy, Cullen, have formed one of nature's most unlikely friendships when they met at Columbus Zoo.
Who knew a cheetah and a puppy could become the best of friends but these two seem to have a awesome partnership. So how did it happen?

Cheetahs can be very nervous animals, so the staff at Columbus Zoo decided Emmett needed a companion.

Instead of finding another cheetah cub the staff decided to introduce Emmett to 7-week-old puppy Cullen.

Cats and dogs don't normally get along but these didn't let that get in the way and amazingly they've now become best friends. Now that's just purr-fect!
