Incredible scene: these lonely and orphaned hedgehogs relax and feel good with a cat
The hedgehog babies were struggling to stay alive after their mother died.
Animals, unlike humans, seem to have a greater sense of love, especially for those in need. Surprisingly, these impulses were not limited only to their type.
But as we would expect, animals never cease to amaze when it comes to helping a living being in dire need of help. A worried mother cat intervened, this time to save eight helpless hedgehogs.
Unfortunately, these little creatures lost their mother shortly after birth. However, their help came when they least expected it.
The little hedgehogs at the Sadgorod Zoo in Vladivostok, Russia, struggled to survive after their mother died and the staff didn’t have time.
At first they tried to bottle feed, but it didn’t work. To survive, hedgehogs needed the warmth and comfort of their mothers. That’s when they decided to give the orphaned kittens to the loving cat Musa.
Surprisingly, the altruistic kitten immediately hugged the eight kittens as if they were her own. “They were in serious danger after eight kids were left without a mother,” said Alena Asnovina, deputy director of the zoo. “They didn’t eat by themselves.”
Musya, who recently raised orphaned kittens, was still giving milk, so she quickly became the adoptive parent of these little souls.
The hedgehogs acted like Musya was their mother when they met the cat. Isn’t it wonderful how Mother Nature surprises us in the most beautiful ways?
“They literally knew what to do within seconds of approaching the cat, feeling her warmth and the smell of her milk,” Alena explained.
“Surprisingly, the cat almost immediately understood what was expected of her. She lay down, and the hedgehogs, fortunately, began to eat.
