A friendly neighbourhood cat has saved the life of a baby boy abandoned in a freezing Russian city Obninsk. The long-haired feline, affectionately named Masha by the residents, discovered the baby boy inside a cardboard box in apartment block. Masha apparently climbed inside the box and wrapped herself around the abandoned child, believed to be less than 12 weeks old, to keep him warm. Hearing Masha’s loud meows, one of the residents rushed to rescue the cat believing she was injured – instead she discovered her curled around the now quiet baby. The baby was rushed to hospital, with Masha attempting to follow the car, and was found to be healthy, despite his outdoors stay.
