Some people can be cruel, while some animals have the biggest hearts.
In the city of Obninsk, Russia, a baby had been left in a cardboard box on the street. Abandoned, alone, and freezing in the winter snow, this baby had a low chance of survival if left alone. No one had checked on the box, assuming it was empty.
It had been a few hours since the baby was left in the street. That’s when a long-haired tabby cat, named Masha, came across the abandoned baby. The cat knew the baby was in trouble, and decided to stay by the baby’s side to keep him warm.
She began the meow to get the attention of people passing by. Being the communal cat, and familiar with local residents, one individual came close to observe Masha’s peculiar behavior. She thought Masha had been hurt, but upon closer inspection, she saw the abandoned baby.
“She is very placid and friendly, so when I heard her meowing, I thought that perhaps she had injured herself,” stated 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 then rushed to a nearby hospital to see if he needed immediate medical attention. Turns out, Masha’s protection and warmth helped the baby stay healthy.
“The baby had only been outside for a few hours and thanks to Masha… he was not damaged by the experience,” said a hospital employee.
Locals have hailed Masha as a hero, and people on the block have been giving Masha her favorite treats ever since.
