Nursing cat adopts orphaned baby squirrels


In Crimea, a cat has “adopted” four orphaned baby squirrels and is raising them as her own alongside her new kittens.

According to staff at Crimea’s Bakhchisaray Miniature Park, located in the southern Crimean peninsula, the squirrels were initially afraid of their feline foster-mother but soon settled in alongside their kitten brothers and sisters.

Though the family is certainly unorthodox, the baby squirrels are now feeding, playing and sleeping happily in their new-found home.
