The tale of pair of Icelandic cats who became best friends made it onto Reddit’s front page yesterday.

The story of the lonely Lancelot who was befriended by the neighbour’s cat has warmed the hearts of internet surfers worldwide.

“Lancelot likes to go outside, but is only allowed out on a lead, so he doesn’t make a lot of friends,” wrote Lancelot’s owner Anna Guðbjörg. “He’s usually over-excited when a cat walks through our yard and bolts at them. But this one cat started to stop by and hang out with him on our porch. Then Neighbor Cat, started coming pretty regularly, and they just bro’d out in the yard.”

When Lancelot is not allowed outside, Neighbour Cat stands by the back door and meows until he is allowed in to play, then meows again at the end of the day so he can return home.
