Masha, a long-haired tabby cat, saved the life of a baby abandoned in the streets of Russia — after she climbed into the box he was discarded in and kept him warm, health officials said. The New York Post reports that Masha got the attention of passers by by meowing. “She is very placid and friendly, so when I heard her meowing, I thought that perhaps she had injured herself,” said Obninsk city resident Irina Lavrova. “Normally she would have come and said hello to me. You can imagine my shock when I saw her lying in a box next to a baby.” The baby was rushed to a local hospital, and was declared to be healthy. Read the full story on The New York Post.
If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we stressed the importance of proper pain management, on Tuesday, we shared with you what to expect if you find yourself caring for a pregnant cat, on Wednesday, we told you about the return of the Kitten Bowl, on Thursday, I answered some of Allegra and Ruby’s questions as part of National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day, and on Friday, I said good bye to Cat Fancy Magazine.
The dog in today’s video really wanted the cat to go inside! I can’t believe the cat let him get away with it.
Have a great weekend!
