Baboon Adopts Stray Kitten At Israeli Zoo (VIDEO)

A baboon has taken it upon itself to adopt a kitten which strayed into its cage at an Israeli zoo.

Toting it around and checking it for fleas, the sight has drawn lots of "ahhhhs" but there's something about this pair-up that frankly gives us the willies.

Perhaps it's the baboon's bright red buttocks that keep hoving into view. Or the kitten's glassy-eyed gaze. It's probably the buttocks.
