Cat adopts four baby squirrels at local park

Cat and baby squirrels

Interspecies friendship is not very common but is not unknown to us. For example, a friendship between dogs and cats, rabbits and alligators, tigers, and other species have been seen worldwide.

Many of these intelligent and emotionally capable beings showcase motherly behavior to the new-born of other species. One such cute cat is Pusha, who has adopted four orphan squirrels at a wildlife park in Crimea.

Animals are capable of showing emotions towards others. Therefore, they can form a trustworthy friendship with animals of other species as well and enjoy their relationship. Even if they are their natural-born foe.

Cat and baby squirrels

People have come across many such unnatural and interspecies friendships and have not shied away from clicking snaps of this rare but authentic behavior in animals. One such incident occurred in Bakhchisaray, Crimea.

A wildlife park in Crimea saw squirrels being brought to the park when they were just 4 weeks of age. They were so small and could not even open their eyes. The caretakers of the wildlife park decided that these squirrels would need a mother to survive.

Pusha, the cat, had also given birth at the same time. She had given birth to 4 kittens. So, the caretakers wanted to give it a try and see if she would accept these young squirrels.

To their surprise, Pusha adopted the squirrels as her own, and the baby squirrels got a new family. The squirrels and the kittens have become a family. They eat and sleep together and have a happy life.
