That's nuts! Squirrel that thinks it's a kitten (and even suckles on its surrogate cat mum)

When this little red squirrel was rescued after being found injured in a local park, it looked like it could be a problem feeding him.

But fortunately up stepped rescuer Ruben Gaviria's cat Tita, who took the little fellow under her wing even providing milk to help him recover.

The squirrel has become such a part of the family that he play alongside his kitten 'brother' in his new home in Envigado near Medellin, Colombia. Now that's a purrfect family...

Kat geeft eekhoorn de borst


Dutch: De natuur zit vol ontwapenende en wonderbaarlijke verhalen. Neem nu deze gewonde eekhoorn die onderdak vond bij een kat. Nadat haar baasje Ruben Gaviria uit Envigado (bij de Colombiaanse grootstad Medellin) een week geleden de jonge eekhoorn gewond had aangetroffen in een park en mee naar zijn huis gebracht, adopteerde de kat Tita het arme diertje. De eekhoorn krijgt zelfs borstvoeding om op kracht te komen.

Ruben Gaviria ziet het schouwspel in zijn woning met plezier aan. Zelfs het kleine katje van Tita speelt met de eekhoorn. Dat leidt tot hilarische taferelen, zoals blijkt uit onderstaande foto's. (hlnsydney/kh)
