A Russian farmer came across a litter of orphaned kittens in dire need of assistance. Their mother was never seen or heard from again.
The farmer couldn’t allow the kittens to fend for themselves, so he snatched them up and phoned for help.
The kittens’ eyes were still shut, and they didn’t like any other cats the farmer had ever seen. When he called the Daursky Nature Reserve, animal rescuers soon realized the kittens were not ordinary house cats.
Palla’s cats, or Manuls, as it turned out, are a little wild cat endemic to Central Asia. Palla’s cat is a fairly uncommon wild feline that may reach a length of 60 cm and a weight of six pounds.
At the rescue, two domestic cats assist in the caring of the wild cat kittens.
Animal care staff hoped that their two domestic cats at the rescue would adopt the kittens and assist care for them, knowing that they required a mother’s care.
The two loving house cats immediately adopted them and welcomed them as their surrogate mother.
The goal was to care for the babies and rehabilitate them before releasing them back into the wild.
These lovely animals are roughly the size of a domestic cat, but with smaller legs and rounder pupils.
They are among the feline kingdom’s most expressive wild cats.
When it was time, the animal care professionals returned the rescued Palla’s cats to their native environment, where they belonged, and said their goodbyes.
The four beautiful wild cats have adapted well to life in the outdoors and are happy.
