We see a lot of animal rescue stories here at LittleThings. It’s inspiring to read such incredible stories about humans taking time and energy to reach out and help our four-legged friends who may not be able to help themselves, but sometime these furry (or scaly, or feathery) creatures can rescue us just as much we rescue them.
Ask anyone who has had experience with a therapy animal and they’ll gladly tell you just how helpful critters can be.
A Russian cat recently proved just how much animals can go out of their way to protect us.
This homeless, long-haired feline has no owner, but the local residents on her block affectionately call her Masha. Masha has always been friendly to the humans in the neighborhood (especially when they feed her), but she really showed her true soul when she spent the night in sub-zero temperatures next to a cold, sick baby boy abandoned in a box on the side of the road.
Masha stayed with the child to keep him warm, and she meowed loudly until another human could find the child.
