Pig and parrot are perfect pals

A pig and a parrot may seem an unlikely pair of friends, but Xena and Jazz are bosom buddies.

According to Nichole, despite being from completely different species, 5-month-old Xena and 16-month-old Jazz are like brother and sister.In par

In particular, she says, the pair love nothing better than chasing each other. Nichole comments: "Xena is the wild one, she loves to chase Jazz around the house."

"I guess it is unfair because Jazz can fly, but if he lands on the ground, Xena has got him."
