Tita the cat has a real sense of purrrpose! She stepped in as mom to an injured squirrel that owner Ruben Gaviria of Medillin, Colombia, rescued one week ago from a park, according to Reuters. Now the furry little critter is treating Tita like mom, drinking her milk and playing with her little kitten. Maybe the squirrel will teach its new sibling how to climb trees and not get stuck!
