When Russian zookeepers realized that newly born lynx cub Nika had been abandoned by her mother, they did something pretty unexpected.

They introduced Nika to a mother house cat and her babies.

The mama cat was nervous at first, but within minutes she was grooming and caring for Nika as if she was one of her own.

Zookeepers noticed an immediate improvement in Nika. The young kitten became more confident and much more playful with a mother’s love in her life.

Watching them nuzzle really reminds me of the value of family. So sweet!
