In Crimea, a cat took custody of newborn baby squirrels who lost their mother.
Small rodents were thrown into the miniature park of Bakhchisarai, where a cat had recently been born. The park staff put squirrels to her, and, to their surprise, she calmly accepted them.
The published footage shows that the squirrels, along with kittens, feed, sleep and play. The cat alternately licks those, then others.
