(Scroll down for video) A stray cat is credited for saving the life of a baby boy.
The cat in Moscow, Russia, cared for the baby by keeping him warm after he was abandoned in a hallway of an apartment building.
The incident took place in Obninsk, Kaluga, where the baby was abandoned and left laying on the ground on Saturday, when temperatures reached below zero.
According to neighbors, the stray cat that was named Masha, lives in a cardboard box in the hallway of the building.
A resident of the building, Nadezhda Makhovikova, said that she opened her door after hearing sounds as if the cat was meowing in distress.
That is when she saw the baby on the floor with the cat cuddling beside him and licking his face, trying to keep the baby warm.
According to the neighbor, when the paramedics arrived and took the baby to the ambulance, the cat ran after them.
The baby is said to be between two and three months old. Doctors at the hospital said that the baby is doing well.
Police have launched an investigation and are searching for the parents while the baby is being cared for at the hospital.
