You might think that cats and squirrels just wouldn’t get along. Well, it appears that, in some cases, a cat will tolerate a baby squirrel and even adopt it!
When animal workers introduced an orphaned squirrel to a mother cat and her family of kittens, the momma cat’s reaction was hardly what you’d expect. Instead of eating the squirrel, the mother cat takes the baby squirrel in as one of her own!
The little fur family seems to not only accept the squirrel’s presence, but they also don’t seem to notice that he is any different than they are. When it comes to caring for a fur-baby in need, species simply didn’t matter. In this case at least!
Thanks to the care of his adoptive mother, this little squirrel will grow up nice and strong and be able to return to the wild soon!
NOTE: As an important note, do not try to help wildlife of any sort unless you are trained. Find a local wildlife rehabber/rescuer or veterinarian ASAP, or call a rescue in your area.
