Baboon 'adopts' kitten at Israeli zoo
A baboon at a children's petting zoo in Israel has adopted a tiny kitten who recently strayed into its cage and then refused to leave.
The baboon now cares for the kitten, rarely letting the feline out of her sight, the zoo's manager told local news website Walla.
Footage filmed by the zoo shows the baboon stroking the kitty and checking its fur for fleas as it would care for its own infant, Sky news reported
But zoo officials warned that, despite the bond, the pair do not always get along.
The baboon reportedly has been stealing the kitten's food.
The zoo's manager told the channel that if that continues, the new friends will have to be separated.
Until then, the unlikely pair will continue to enjoy each other's company.
