Os cães são, normalmente, os animais mais associados a casos de lealdade e de salvamento mas esta gata veio ‘dar a volta ao texto’.

Na Rússia, uma gata encontrou um bebé abandonado na rua, na cidade de Obninsk, com temperaturas negativas.

Masha entrou para a caixa onde o bebé estava para o manter quente e começou a miar, explica o Metro.

Irina Lavrova, de 68 anos, saiu de casa para deitar fora o lixo e ouviu o animal. Achando que a gata estava em dificuldades, aproximou-se dos caixotes do lixo e, para seu espanto, encontrou um menino deitado dentro de uma caixa, com a gata ao seu lado.

“Toda a gente aqui no bairro conhece e cuida da Masha. Pode imaginar o meu choque quando a vi deitada ao lado do bebé”, referiu a senhora, acrescentando que foi “claramente o instinto maternal” da gata que a levou a proteger o menino.

O bebé, com cerca de três meses, foi encontrado vestido, com fraldas limpas ao seu lado e ainda comida de bebé. Foi em seguida, levado para o hospital para ser observado e está bem de saúde.
