The unlikely pair have been “comforting each other” for possibly as far back as years at a farm in Kershaw, S.C., Jennifer Gordon of the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue told The Charlotte Observer. The animals were discovered after the owner of the farm seemingly abandoned it last week.

Gordon guesses the animals’ relationship grew out of loneliness there. “They are very bonded,” the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue said in a Facebook post.

“They like to cuddle and even sleep together,” Gordon told the Observer.
