Cat Adopts 4 Baby Squirrels Who Needed a Mom

Playing

A mother cat opened up her heart and adopted four squirrels. 

Pusha, who lives in a miniature park on the southern Crimean peninsula, was given the baby squirrels by local residents who saw the animals needed a mom. 

At first, Pusha wasn’t sold on the idea and the baby squirrels were frightened by their new mom-to-be, but eventually they all became acclimated with one another. 

With four kittens of her own to feed, Pusha still took on the four new babies

She does attempt to feed all of the babies but doesn't have enough milk, so whoever doesn’t get to the meal in time is given goat’s milk in a bottle.
