BEIJING, Sept. 16 (Xinhuanet) -- A farmhouse cat has adopted a chicken after she became the only survivor of a fox attack in Middleton, near Leiston in Suffolk, Britain.

It's an unlikely partnering, but the pair have become firm friends -- even lavishing affection on each other. The incredible friendship blossomed just over two months ago when a fox killed 13 chicks -- leaving the chick Gladys as the only survivor.

Alone and in need of a friend, Gladys was brought into the farmhouse by her owners to keep her safe. And it was here her beautiful friendship with the cat Snowy began.
