Cat and Mouse Become Best Friends

In Tokyo, Japan, these cute animals used to be enemies… but they have now signed a peace treaty to be best friends. How? Well, it’s actually down to science. Mice fear cats because they are innately conditioned to express fear when they sense the odour of a predator.

Find out why this cat and mouse have put aside their usual differences and become best buddies.
