How about a little sunshine on this overcast morning?

The San Diego Zoo recently snapped this ADORABLE photo of a 6-week old greater one-horned rhinoceros named Chutti bonding with an 8-month old calf named Moo Moo Kitty. Chutti was born on November 27, but unfortunately his mother wasn't producing enough milk, so zookeepers are bottle feeding him with horse's milk. According to the LA Times, keepers decided to hook him up with Moo Moo Kitty so they can be bffs forever and ever. Moo Moo Kitty is an Ankole-Watusi, a type of domestic cow native to Africa whose bulls can sport some massive horns. Seriously, just look at those things.

The hope is that Chutti and Moo Moo Kitty will be pals for about a year until Chutti is fully weaned. But we all know that friendships are forever.
