When a young Lynx was rejected by her mother, employees at the Novosibirsk Zoo quickly came up with a solution to help the tiny, motherless cub. The idea was to bring a female cat into work to act as a surrogate mother. They were all hoping that the cat who had given birth to kittens would adopt the little baby lynx as her own.
Not long after meeting, the domesticated cat’s motherly instinct kicked in and she started grooming and cuddling her new baby. Nika is now eating better and growing very fast and pretty soon she’ll outgrow her surrogate mom.
After all, doesn’t everyone deserves a bit of motherly love?
