Say "meow" to this precious duo at this Osaka city coffee shop. This unusual friendship between owl and kitten is worshipped at the Hukulou Coffee shop. The shop's owner says the five year old owl and two month old Scottish Fold kitten were put together because they look alike. Now the two can't be separated! Let's take a trip to Europe now to this zoo near Paris where you can say 'Bonjour!' to adorable newborn lion cubs Atlas, Kibo and Shanti. They're a rare breed resembling the Asian lion, but are actually descendants of the Barbary Lion from North Africa. With a heat wave sweeping across Europe -- it's time to cool down at the zoo in Rome. No gelato for these animals, though. They're given ice lollie pops made out of fruit and yogurt. A slice of iced melon and a dip in your private pool isn't to shabby for the brown bears either. Traveling to Mexico now, watch out for this one-humped camel at Mexico City's Chapultepec Zoo -- he might just lick you. Though his mother rejected this little guy who's yet to be named, he'll be living with his brother Sul-ik, before possibly being transferred to another zoo. And in a new chapter on the animal-human bond, talk about Bridezilla! Mayor Vasquez Rojas of the southern Mexican fishing town San Pedro Huamelula tied the knot with this beautiful bride. And it just goes to show ... beauty is in the eye of the eye of the beholder.
