The wild stag is named Flippen, and he has been dropping by to check on his old friend twice a day for the last four years.

In return for the animal's companionship, Mette Kvam of Aurland, Norway, returns his affection by giving him head rubs and feeding him bread and other snacks.

"She says that they are so lucky for having each other," Britt Haugsevje Vangn, who caught the display on camera, told Caters News. "Mette has no kids and since her husband passed away she has no one — she only has Flippen in her life now."

But, it seems like Flippen has no problem keeping the widow company. He's even sometimes spotted sleeping outside her home.
