What relationship has a cat with a squirrel? This is a question that anyone would firstly ask him or herself if told that a mama cat has taken it upon herself to raise a baby squirrel. So funny, how an animal as this would have such amazing maternal instinct.
Already, this mother cat has got a litter comprising of six kittens when this small and tender baby squirrel was introduced. Without any hesitation, she began to nurse it. Firstly, she tried to keep it warm by licking through its fur and ensuring that it smells the same way her own kittens did. In fact, she cared for it as if it was her biological offspring.
This squirrel must have been abandoned by its mother and in order to survive in the world of today, it would require some tender assistance of love, care and affection from an adopted mother. I guess this mother cat must have thought of this first before launching out to support it. Obviously, the squirrel was shivering and barely breathing when it first came in but you need to see what love from this mother cat has done to it.
The squirrel grew to socialize with the other kittens to the extent that it was accepted and taken as part of their own. It soon acclimatized with its new environment and began to play around with toys and other kittens.
Naturally, it would be hard to believe that a mother cat could just simply accept a little squirrel that was just placed next to her. Upon noticing the little baby squirrel, this affectionate cat mama immediately drew it closer to her side and began taken care of it along with her own kittens.
As other kittens scamper and struggle to get nourishment from their mother’s tits, this tiny squirrel also does the same. No doubt, this act of love and affection surprised everyone. It is uncommon to find a mothering cat to be so sweet as this to take an orphan squirrel and provide it with warmth, care and support. In less than no time, the squirrel grew to become a part of the family of the kitten family in such a normal way.
This feline pet has shocked the world with this simply act of kindness. Everyone needs to learn from this.
