Watch: Baboon Adopts Stray Kitten

People say the baboon looks after the cat as if it were its infant

A baboon living in a zoo in Israel is now the proud foster mom of a stray kitten.

The small feline somehow walked into its cage and then refused to leave, most likely because it got all the love and attention it needed.

This video showing the baboon looking after the kitten just hit the online community, and it is causing quite a stir.

Given the fact that the monkey constantly checks to see if the cat has any fleas and always makes sure it is out of harm's way, people are now saying that the baboon pretty much considers the cat to be its own offspring.

However, zoo keepers explain that the two do not always get along, and that sometimes the baboon goes as far as to steal the cat's food.
