Everyone's gushing over the cutest little animal friendship ever...pouched?

That's right: a pouch is where baby wombat Peggy met fellow orphan Anzac at an Australian animal rescue center, reported Yahoo!News

Anzac, a five-month-old joey, was found abandoned in the Macedon Ranges and brought to Wildlife Kilmore Rescue Centre in Victoria, Australia.

But the "very social" Anzac was lonely -- in the Biblical sense? a bit young, no? -- so caretakers had him share a cozy little pouch with similarly "boisterous and cheeky" wombat Peggy, according to Britain's Daily Mail

Result? "World Melts," pronounced The Huffington Post (adding emphatically: "PICTURES").

Luckily, both are herbivores, the Daily Mail pointed out, so their their friendship won't be threatened by more, um, elemental urges.

Shelter worker Lisa Milligan said the two baby animals are comforted by one another's presence, especially the heartbeat, according to Yahoo!News.
