MELBOURNE, May 19 (UPI) -- An Australian pet owner shared video of her "strange bedfellows" -- three cats and a 17-year-old freshwater crocodile.

Melbourne resident Vicki Lowing, owner of Crocs N Critters Wildlife Demonstrations, posted a video to YouTube showing two young cats curiously approaching and attempting to play with Johnie the crocodile while an older cat, a longtime "pal" of the croc, keeps watch.

One of the young felines repeatedly approaches Johnie and cautiously uses its mouth and paws to touch the reptile's tail and feet.

The patient croc doesn't show any aggression toward the cats, which are spooked anyway when Johnie turns to face them.
