Masha’s Natural Instinct
Since domestication, cats have naturally been instilled with a feeling of deep love for their humans. Though some cats are shy, aggressive, or stand-offish, most are deeply affectionate and have a loving relationship with people. They may fear people when they do not know them. They sometimes find the human is gigantic in front of them. However, in the case of human babies, they can care about them as if they are their very own.
A Cold Day
One such example is the Russian long-haired cat “Masha”. She has proven how much love they have to offer to humans, and how their compassionate “mothering” can even save the lives of human babies. Thanks to Masha’s maternal instincts and kind heart, an abandoned baby got a second chance at life. She cared for the infant for hours in the frosty air, and managed to attract help.
Masha showered all her love on the poor discarded baby after finding him. Alone and unloved, in a box outside on a cold winter day in Russia. Masha sat with the abandoned baby, keeping him warm, alive, and protecting him against the harsh elements. She meowed, crying for help from people passing by. Hoping to attract the attention of someone who could save the baby from his cruel fate. Masha proved that humans are not the only ones who can save other species, but cats can do the same.
With her heroic act, Masha has returned the love and courtesy that so many humans show their cats. Today, the whole human race can be thankful to Masha for saving a human baby by being there for him when there was none to help him or care for him
After the Incident, the passer-by who saved the boy, after hearing Masha meow, has told how friendly and placid a cat she is. The passer-by even expressed his amazement when he saw Masha sitting next to the abandoned baby. Caressing and keeping him warm to save his life. There are many such stories of feline heroics. Defending children from other animals, or pulling them out of harm way in the nick of time. If we ever needed a reason to be kind to others, no matter their size or species. The heart-warming story of Masha reminds us that we get back the love that we give to others.
