Such a heroic kitty!
A cat from Obninsk, Russia recently did some amazingness by keeping an abandoned baby warm until someone finally found the baby and brought the little one to the hospital!
Not only did the cat named Masha use its fur to keep the baby’s body warm, but the kitty also meowed to get the attention of passerby to recognize that a baby was there!
Which someone finally did!
And it’s a good thing they did as the baby had only been outside for a few hours at that point, but the weather was already in the 30’s!
Here’s what a hospital spokesperson said:
“The baby had only been outside for a few hours and thanks to Masha … he was not damaged by the experience.”
The cat had found the baby in the cardboard box and had climbed in to keep the little one warm.
And the meows coming from the box made one Obninsk city resident named Irina Lavrova pause since the stray cat is usually really quiet! Here’s what Irina said:
“She is very placid and friendly, so when I heard her meowing, I thought that perhaps she had injured herself. Normally she would have come and said hello to me. You can imagine my shock when I saw her lying in a box next to a baby…Clearly her mothering instincts had taken over and she wanted to protect the child. He was well-dressed with a little hat, and whoever left him here had even left a few nappies and some baby food.”
After the baby was taken to the hospital, the lil’ boy was declared by the hospital as totally fit and healthy.
And locals could NOT be more proud of the cat!
“Everyone in the block is very proud of her. We have all spoiled her rotten by giving her her favorite food.”
Spoiling a hero rotten sounds pretty good to us!
