Prepare to feel some serious spine-tingling fuzzies for these inseparable interspecies friends! From crazy in love, to bizarre buddies, these animal odd couples will make you wonder why we all can't just get along!

These adorable animal duos have come straight from our readers and they couldn't be cuter! Take a look below and remember, you can share your own Animal Tales with us for your chance to win!

1. Rommel and Wally - sent in by J. Shimitras from NSW

Meet Wally the ageing native male Wallaroo and Rommel, the 10 month old German Shepherd farm dog! 

While Rommel loves to play with everyone and everything, Wally wasn't so sure. Initially, Wally was somewhat evasive of the enthusiastic playfulness that Rommel exhibited, however, over the past few weeks they have become great playmates and whenever the opportunity arises they engage in canine and marsupial antics. Wally now has a big bounding, energetic Germany Shepherd puppy to keep him company!


2.  Roxy and Chooch -  sent in by A. Vella from VIC

While it looks like pup Roxy and family cat Chooch are set to become lifelong friends, Chooch doesn't look too impressed about having to share HER couch!


3. Cuddlebug the cat and  Marvin the turtle - sent in by D. Edwards from VIC.

Cuddlebug has a very special friendship with Marvin the turtle. The pair love hanging out together, but the same can't be said for the three other cats in the Edwards' household!


4. Dusty the cat and Flopsy the bunny - sent in by N. Locke from WA.

While Dusty and Flopsy were scared of each other at first, they slowly became friends and are now hanging out with each other more and more each day.


5. Kelpie Sam and his magpie - sent in by M. Peake from QLD

Kelpie Sam took this baby magpie under his wing after he was kicked out of his nest nearly 12 months ago. Now the magpie thinks he owns the place and doesn't want to leave! But Sam doesn't see to mind. 


6. Bazil the cat and his pet mouse - sent in by Z. Oats from VIC


Bazil, was hit by a car 2 years ago and has had one of his back legs removed. But that doesn't stop him from catching and playing with mice. The difference between Baz and other cats, though, is that he catches them, has a play and then lets them go! 


7. Sid the goat and Marty the bird - sent in by P. Heffernan from NSW


You just can't keep these two apart! Sid the miniature goat got on top of Marty the Indian ring neck's cage and no one knows how he got up there! One things for sure, he didn't want to get back down!


8.Nullah the pup and harry the rooster sent in by B. Iceton-Scrivener from NSW.


Nullah and Harry have grown up together and have been great playmates! Harry is infatuated with Nullah and follows her everywhere. Lately he has been dancing around her and dropping his wing as roosters do! 


9. Yuki, Buddy and Molly - sent in by J. Meldrum from NSW

Molly the maltese, Yuki the ragdoll and Buddy the (cheeky) mini foxi are so close they are like a little family! 


10. Abraham the Dogue de Bordeaux and Petal the Wallaby - sent in by T. Beckett from QLD

Abraham the Dogue de Bordeaux has established himself as a guard dog in the Beckett house and loves all the family pets. But one of his favorites is Petal the little orphaned pretty face wallaby. He guards all the new pets who arrive at his house.
