A series of photographs depicting an unusual display of maternal love has warmed our hearts. When amateur photographer Anne Young visited Indonesia’s Monkey Forest Park, she came across a mismatched but adorable pair.
A Macaque monkey was cradling a kitten, and it was obvious that the two had a strong and loving bond.
We’re obsessed with the photos Young took of the adorable couple.
The monkey held the kitten in her arms as if he were her own son.
And he cuddled up to her like she was his mommy.
Interspecies adoption has been observed in many different species.
Some animals feel a deep urge to protect an injured or orphaned baby.
This stray would have been all alone if the Macaque hadn’t adopted him.
But now he’s loved and protected. What an amazing sight.
