The baby survived thanks to a street cat that took care of him. The parents left the newborn baby on the street in the middle of winter, condemning him to death, but the cat named Dasha showed real heroism and took care of the baby until people found him.
Dasha does not have a home, she can be found on city streets. In winter, the cat is very helped by its long and thick fur, which keeps it from freezing.
On this day, the cat, as usual, was wandering along the street, but suddenly it heard a noise. The cat decided to see where it was coming from and went over to a box not far from the road.
A curious cat spotted a little baby in a box. The baby was only three months old and his parents decided to get rid of him, leaving him out in the cold. The cat realized that this is not the right thing to do and if people don’t want to help their child, then it will help the baby.
The cat climbed into the box and lay down near the baby to warm him with its warmth. Dasha started crying loudly, hoping to get people’s attention.
A woman who regularly fed Dasha found the cat and the baby.
“She is a quiet and calm cat, always behaving very well-mannered, so when I heard her loud screaming I thought she was hurt and rushed to help. When I saw that she was not alone in the box, but with the baby, I was shocked. I think, unlike the baby’s mother, the cat’s maternal instinct kicked in.
She decided to protect the baby, even though it wasn’t her baby. The baby was dressed, though not warm enough for the weather outside. There was a package of baby food and a pair of diapers next to him,” the woman recalled that day.
The child was immediately handed over to the medics, who after examination concluded that the baby’s health had not suffered. The child spent several hours in the street, and Dasha, who kept him warm with her thick fur, helped him not to freeze.
The child’s parents were never found. Dasha still lives on the street, although the locals now treat her like a heroine, feeding her goodies.
