  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

There's just no substitute for a mother's love, as this caring cat proves as she plays surrogate mum to an adorable litter of orphaned hedgehogs.

Sonya, the ginger cat from central Russia, only had one kitten of her own meaning there was plenty of milk to spare, so she readily adopted the four baby hedgehogs into the family.

She treats them, exactly as if they were her own, allowing them to suckle to their hearts content and then snuggle up to sleep in her fur when they're full.

Oh my goodness, that is SOOO sweet! :-* I had a ginger female cat once, who was very very TESTY, I reckon these wee hedgehogs will give her a run for her money though once they get their spiky spines!

So happy, when i see love amonst nature's creatures.

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

I would of thought the Cat would of had a fun time getting at those hedgehogs, they dont look too far off from mice.  Glad to see she took this approach. cool video!
