KINGSTON, R.I. — A Rhode Island man captured a cute moment between a groundhog and a squirrel sharing a meal together.

Ronald Lopes loves nature.

He has bird feeders all around his backyard.

He recently bought a miniature picnic table to also feed his furry, frequent visitors, primarily squirrels and chipmunks.

Lopes says a few weeks ago he witnessed a beautiful breakfast date between a squirrel and a groundhog.

Lopes said they've now made it part of their regular routine.

He's taken to posting the animals on Facebook with the hope that by sharing the positive interactions of care-free creatures humans will follow suit.
