[Caters News}- These “snapcats” have found their bunny doppelgängers in a series of super-sweet photo shoots. Animal photographer Mark Taylor, from Surrey, England, and his assistants have scoured the U.K. to bring together carbon-copy rabbits and cats.

Sharing details such as fur and eye color, seating positions, startled expressions, and even matching markings on their noses, the cute animals look as if they came from the same litter. Some of them also appear to be the best of friends, with the pairs cuddling up to and even lying on top of each other.

Cameron Highlands is not only about strawberries and flower gardens, the beautiful scenery and landscapes, and the greenery is something we cannot easily find in the city.
