Orphaned Baby Hedgehogs Survive After Being Adopted By a Cat

When eight baby hedgehogs lost their mother after being run over by a car, newly born and in desperate need of milk and affection hedgehogs, their future looked very uncertain. Fortunately after a little hunting around at Sadgorod Zoo in the Russian city of Vladivostok, the hoglets found an unlikely wet-nurse in Musya the cat, who could be seen feeding the babies, Thursday.
Prior to their adoption, the baby hedgehogs refused to be fed from a bottle or syringe and still blind, and were beginning to starve. The zoo was left with no other suitable choice but to try putting the mammals together with a new mother. Musya the cat still had milk left after taking care of several foster kittens, and luckily, the babies took to her very quick.
Musya not only feeds both the hoglets during day time and her babies at night. For the most part, the standby mum and the hedgehogs get on well.
