Stray Cat Saves Abandoned Baby In Russia

An abandoned newborn baby was saved from freezing to death by the unlikeliest of hero, a stray cat.

The tabby named Marsha climbed into the box the infant had been dumped in and kept the child warm for several hours as the mercury plunged below zero.

Residents in the block of flats found the unusual surrogate curled around the freezing boy and licking his face after being alerted by his cries.
