Meet a Russian mama kitty named Musya, this week’s Caturday hero who has taken in a litter of eight orphaned hedgehog babies – hedgehoglets! – at Sadgorod Zoo in Vladivostok, Russia, where she’s nursing them and patiently tending to them as though they were her own.
“Before their adoption the baby hedgehogs refused to be fed from a bottle or syringe and, still blind, were beginning to starve. Musya the cat still had milk left after taking care of several foster kittens, and fortunately, the youngsters took to her immediately. Musya not only feeds the hoglets, but also takes care of the babies at night.”
