British shorthair cuddles and licks a tiny duckling in China

This is the sweet moment a British shorthair cat tightly hugged a duckling and repeatedly licked it in central China.

The adorable video, shot in Xiaogan City in Hubei Province on June 9, shows the one-year-old cat embracing his tiny duck friend with both of its front legs.

Another clip shows the duckling stretching its neck to kiss the cat on the mouth.

The owner Xiao Yi said the cat and the duck became best friends after she brought the duckling back home a month ago.
