Farmer learns the kittens he found in his barn were no ordinary kittens (Gallery)
A Russian farmer was making the rounds on his property when he came across four teeny kittens in his barn.
Alone and crying for help, the farmer decided to take them inside his home. Little did he know, those little kittens weren’t ordinary kittens.
His two domestic cats surprisingly took them in and even nursed them! He thought he had an adorable kitty family.
But as the kittens grew stronger, he realized that they weren’t domestic house cats at all.
He then called the Daursky Nature Reserve, and they quickly identified the animals as Pallas’s cats, also known as manuls, a rare species of wild cat that is native to Central Asia.
The facility came by to take them in, where they would care for them and ultimately release them back into the wild.
Sadly, the farmer had to say goodbye. The Pallas’s cats are meant to be in the wild.
Once strong enough, the cats were released into the wilderness with tracking equipment. They packed on weight and have been thriving ever since!
Pallas's cats are nearing endangerment, but the world got to keep four more of these beautiful creatures thanks to this farmer's kindness.
Share the cute!
