VIDEO: Baby Prairie Dog and Cat Become the Best of Friends

06/09/2014 at 11:45 AM EDT

Friendship is magic.

Jason Hilt has had a baby prairie dog in his Auburndale, Florida, home for a few weeks now, and apparently, the little guy is getting on better than expected with Hilt's cat.

To be fair, this looks like an astonishingly tolerant cat. Proof: The feline repeatedly rolls over for the prairie dog, only giving the little guy a bat on the nose when he tries to gnaw on the cat's hindfoot. (Wouldn't you?)

We suggest opening another tab and soundtracking this clip with the friendship-oriented song of your own choosing. (Suggestion: Queen's "You're My Best Friend.")
