CUTE VIDEO ALERT: Cat nurses orphaned baby squirrel

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Two scoops of adorable in Crimea as this new mama cat, named Pusha, has apparently adopted an orphaned baby squirrel, along with her own kittens.

Pusha lives at a zoo on the southern Crimean Peninsula and was recently given four baby squirrels to care for.

The babies had been turned over to the zoo by local residents who found them without a mother.

A keeper at the zoo says it took a bit for the squirrels to get used to their new mother, but now the five are one happy furry family.

Since Pusha sometimes struggles to produce enough milk for four hungry mouths, park staff help out by supplementing with goat's milk in tiny bottles.
