At a petting zoo in Israel, a baboon has adopted a tiny kitten who recently strayed into its cage and then refused to leave.

The baboon now cares for the kitten, rarely letting the feline out of her sight. Footage shot at the zoo shows that the baboon even checks the kitty for fleas, according to The Associated Press.

Zoo officials told local news website Walla that although the baboon is caring for the cat as it would its own infant, the two are a complex pair that do not always get along. Often the baboon can be seen stealing the kitten’s food, officials said. If that thievery continues, the pals will have to be separated, the zoo’s manager told Walla News.

Until then, the unlikely pair will continue to enjoy each other’s company.
