Lifestyle Pets Cat and Elk Meet Face-to-Face at Colorado Window and Try to Cuddle Through Glass Charlie the cat regularly watches wild animals walk through his Estes Park, Colorado backyard, but seems to enjoy the elk most of all By Kelli Bender Published on January 26, 2022 06:03 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Colorado cats can make some real wild friends. On Jan. 24, Andrew Derek Flockhart of Estes Park, Colorado, spotted his cat Charlie partaking in one of his favorite hobbies: communing with local elk. "We live in a magical place where elk, deer, and other wildlife roam freely through the town," Flockhart told Storyful. "Our cat, Charlie, loves to watch them from our windows and has become very fond of the elk, who sometimes come up to have a look inside our house." The cat dad decided to film his feline's recent visit with the wild animals for all pet lovers to enjoy.

Andrew Derek Flockhart/Storyful Even though a windowpane separates the furry pair, Charlie still attempts to cuddle with the elk by rubbing his head and body against the glass near the wild animal's face. At one point in the video, Charlie appears to try to initiate a game of patty cake with the elk. The pet repeatedly drags his paws against the window from the inside, but the elk doesn't respond to the invitation.
