A Russian pet cat has actually embraced an infant squirrel monkey after he was deserted by his mom at a zoo, comforting the little primate by allowing him hold on to her back for heat.
Tatyana Antropova, the supervisor of the zoo in the Siberian city of Tyumen, claims she took the newborn ape residence three weeks earlier after his mother refused to lug him on her back.
To Antropova’s surprise, her 16-year-old pet cat Rosinka approved the child, who is called Fyodor. By now, though, the elderly pet cat is obtaining a bit fed up with the little ape since he “is getting naughty” and “has actually started biting as well as squeezing her.”
The pet cat just needs to claim one more month, when Fyodor will go back to the zoo to live with other squirrel monkeys.
