Cat Nurses Her Kitten - And Four Orphaned Hedgehogs (VIDEO)

Waaaah! Sorry. You'll have to excuse us. Our hearts just melted a little bit after watching the video above, you see. And it's almost too much to take.

The story? When four baby hedgehogs lost their mother, a kindly cat was happy to step in and nurse them instead - although, as you can see, she takes plenty of care to look after her own kitten, too.

They're all from Russia, in case you were wondering. And we don't know much more than that, we're afraid. But we'd like to thank the nice people at for first bringing this heart-warming scene to our attention.

Fancy cooing over some more unusual animal friendships? Go right ahead!
