An unusual friendship is blossoming at the Axe Valley Wildlife Park in Axminster.

Tegan the cat has palled up with Rascal, a Meerkat, and the two like nothing better than to take a snooze together amongst the Christmas decorations.

The park’s education officer Marie Pulman said it was an “unusual friendship but a wonderful one”.

Meanwhile some of the other animals from the wildlife park were recently introduced to youngsters at St Michael’s Primary School in Lyme Regis.
