Cat adopts baby red panda

A newborn red panda rejected by its mother in Amsterdam's Artis zoo has been adopted by a domestic cat. The cat is nursing the red panda, currently about the size of a kitten, along with her own four kittens, the zoo said. The red panda was born on June 30 and rejected by its mother soon afterwards. Red pandas look like raccoons and when fully grown are slightly larger than a domestic cat -- substantially smaller than the black and white giant panda. Source: Reuters
