A motherly house cat at a Russian zoo has bonded with an abandoned lynx kitten. She nurtures the giant baby as if it were her own.
It’s a sad story that happens all too often: An animal is rejected by its mother, left to fend for itself. In this case, the abandoned baby was a lynx kitten, and a worker at the zoo where she was born had a cat that had recently had kittens.
The cat was brought to meet the Nika the lynx and instantly fell in love. She took this lost kitten as her own, and cares for what she must think is her biggest kitten by far.
