Everyone is calling this loving long-haired tabby cat a hero. And when you hear what Masha the cat did, you’ll know that God sent this furry friend to be a guardian angel and save a baby’s life!
After finding an abandoned baby boy in Russia dumped on the street, Masha the cat climbed into the box with the baby to keep him warm.
Then, the caring momma cat got help by meowing non-stop to draw attention to the poor 3-month-old baby boy.
That’s when Irina Lavrova, a retired woman who lived nearby, heard Masha’s cries.
Abandoned Baby In Russia Rescued By Cat
The woman had walked out to empty her trash. And there, by the apartment complex’s trashcans, Masha the cat sat crying loudly for help.
Irina recognized Masha as a stray cat she and her neighbors had been taking care of. And she knew Masha was normally very calm and friendly.
“She is very placid and friendly so when I heard her mewing I thought that perhaps she had injured herself because normally she would have come and said hello to me,” Irina said.
Concerned for the kitty, Irina went to investigate. And that’s when she spied Masha the cat peeking at her from an abandoned box in the middle of the cans.
Irina walked closer, and what she found completely stunned her. She could not believe her eyes when she looked inside the box and saw the baby boy lying there with Masha snuggled up next to him!
“You can imagine my shock when I saw her lying in a box next to a baby” exclaimed Irina.
“Clearly her mothering instincts had taken over and she wanted to protect the child,” she added.
Quickly, Irina called an ambulance. They took the infant to hospital where doctors gave him a check-up. Miraculously, the baby was unharmed.
Masha The Cat Dubbed A Hero After Saving Baby
A hospital spokesman said, ‘The baby had only been outside for a few hours and thanks to Masha and the child’s clothing he was not damaged by the experience.’
Now local residents are treating Masha the cat like the hero she is.
‘Everyone in the block is very proud of her and we have all spoiled her rotten by giving her her favorite food.’ Irina said.
What a blessed miracle that God sent this caring creature to watch over the poor abandoned baby in his time of need! Please pray that both this precious baby boy and the furry guardian angel who cared for him will find loving homes. God clearly has big plans for this special little boy to have kept him safe from harm in such a special way!
