Mom Rejects Her Baby Monkey


When a squirrel monkey gave birth to her baby at the Tyumen Zoo in Russia, she refused from him. Little Fyodor could die but zoo director Tatiana Antropova took him home and decided to introduce the baby to her 16-year-old cat Rosinka. The decision was risky as woman did not know how her cat would react. Surprisingly, cat accepted the baby. The monkey climbed the cat’s back and has not left her since then. They bonded with each other and monkey is always on her back with exception of the time when Tatiana feeds the baby with milk. Tatiana plans to return the baby to the zoo in a month. Besides, the baby is growing and it is hard for her to carry Fyodor on back all the time.
