Cat adopts one-month old baby squirrels

- Here's a story sure to "purr" on your heart-strings.

A cat in Ukraine named "Belka" has become a mother figure to two baby squirrels.

Belka had just delivered a litter of kittens when the one-month old squirrels were found abandoned by a neighbor.

So Belka's owners decided to place the squirrels among the kittens. She seemed to immediately open her heart, feeding and cuddling them.

It seems only natural that "Belka" in Ukrainian means "squirrel."
