THIS Asian black bear and pretty puss are still FURRY friends seven years after they became chums.

The odd friendship began in 2001 after Muschi the cat didn't even paws for thought before trotting into Mausi the bear's enclosure.

The 40-year-old bear has welcomed Muschi into his caged home with big furry arms ever since.

The bizarre pair even SHARE FOOD at Berlin Zoo, Germany.

Zoo caretaker Thomas Dvrflein said: "Muschi entered the enclosure of Mausi nearly seven years ago and started to eat the food in the enclosure."

"She was accepted straight away and they have been inseparable ever since, sharing food, cuddling and spending their days together."

Let's hope their friendship continues to bear up well.
