A group of Good Samaritans in Bakhchysarai, on the southern Crimean peninsula, recently discovered and rescued four orphaned baby red squirrels.
The squirrels were only 1 month old, and their eyes were barely open.
The group safely placed the squirrels in a box and brought them to Miniature Park, a tourist destination where a family of cats resides.
The adult female cat, named Pusha, had recently delivered a litter of four kittens. The group decided to turn the baby squirrels over to Pusha in the hopes she would accept and raise them as her own babies.
There was not an instant connection between the two species, as it definitely took some time for the animals, who typically would be enemies out in the wild, to get used to one another.
The baby squirrels were afraid of Pusha, and Pusha got freaked out whenever the squirrels tried to make contact with her.
But as you’re about to see, things are now much different between Pusha and her brand-new babies… proving once again that a mother’s love truly knows no bounds.
