This video has a full cast: Simba, the lion cub, Monty, the dog, and Thumper, the rabbit. I kid you not. And they are the best playmates. Check out this adorable trio romping and playing together in this priceless clip.
The 13-week-old lion cub cuddles his buddy, Thumper. Meanwhile, Monty tumbles and rolls with Simba, making their mutual affection for one another obvious to everyone.
Little Simba was ill when he was a cub, and so the zookeepers at Glasgow Zoo, in Glasgow, Scotland, brought him home to bottle-feed him. There he met his two buddies – Monty and Thumper. All sorts of mischief was to follow.
As he gets older and bigger, Simba is quite the distraction in the house – including giving one of her humans quite the fright when stepping out of the bathroom.
Simba is also almost completely better and able to go back to her zoo accommodation. I sure hope she gets to continue playing with her domestic buddies as she gets older. Check them all out in the video below.
