Animals are full of love and know what it’s like to be abandoned. They adore babies and will do anything to help them out. Recently, a cat managed to save an abandoned baby and became an instant hero in Russia.
Masha the cat is a stray from a town called Obisinks in Russia. She is being taken care of by the whole neighborhood. The people there are feeding the cat every day and letting her in when it’s cold.
One lady, IrnaLavoraa, is particularly fond of Masha. She loves having her in and spoiling her and she’s always worried when the cat goes missing for a day or two. One day while doing some chores, she heard strange noises coming from the basement. Irna rushed to the basement thinking Masha is injured, but she couldn’t have guessed what was waiting for her in there.
Irna was shocked – she found a box with a baby crying in it and Masha keeping it warm! She immediately called the police who took the baby. They concluded it was about 12 weeks old and spent a few hours in the basement. One police officer said that if it wasn’t for Masha, the unfortunate abandoned baby would probably have died from the cold!
Masha was pretty fond of the baby and didn’t like leaving his side even when the ambulance came to take it away. Her maternal instincts didn’t let her abandon the baby just like his mom did.
“She was worried about the baby, running after the van when we were taking him away. She’s incredible,” the medical van driver said of Masha.
The little boy is now recovering and is in good condition while the search for his parents continues.
“Masha is always calm and friendly. Her maternal instinct took over when she heard and saw the baby and it was really lucky that she was around,” Irna says.
