A feral cat and a bear are friends at the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary.

Zoo keepers call the black cat Little Bear. They don't know where she came from or even if it's really a "she."

She just showed up at the zoo and a few months ago she started to call one of the bear exhibits home.

"Every morning we scatter dog food for the bears and she started coming into the exhibit and eating the dog food," said Jill Faust, senior lead zoo keeper. "Once she started coming in here on a regular basis we started putting food out for her in the morning as well."

However what has made this situation even more unusual is that the cat is friends with a 550 pound bear named Sequoia.

"Sequoia walks right by her, she'll walk right by Sequoia and they'll stay pretty close to each other," Faust said.

They get so close that even some visitors get nervous. Some told us thinking it was dangerous for them to be so close. However more of them are surprised they're friends.

But don't let size fool you. Little Bear and Sequoia have some things in common. They're both older animals, love the shade and each other's company.
