The Scoop: Generous Cat Adopts Abandoned Red Panda Babe!

Holy moly, I don't think I can handle any more helpful kitties – my heart is melting with the latest tale. Although it's hard to tell what's going on in these pictures, it's actually a Red Panda (BTW, my favorite wild animal in the world) being nursed by a Dutch tabby cat! The baby's mother, Gladys, rejected her two cubs just after they were born on June 30 . . . leaving zookeepers with a wee problem on their hands.

Even though the two babies started out in an incubator (sadly, one was too weak and died last Thursday), one of the zookeepers at Amsterdam's Artis Zoo had a pet that had just given birth herself . . . and this mama cat was willing to take on one more babe, the Red Panda currently about the same size as her four kittens. I can't imagine what sweet coupling we'll see next!
