The boy was discovered by police in Misiones, in Argentina, surrounded by eight wild cats who it is believed snuggled up to him during the cold nights to keep him alive and fed him scraps of food.


Policewoman Alicia Lorena Lindgvist discovered the child by a canal in the Christ King district of the city.

She said: "I was walking and noticed a gang of cats sitting very close together. It is unusual to see so many like that so I went for a closer look and that's where I saw him. The boy was lying at the bottom of a gutter. There were all these cats on top of him licking him because he was really dirty.

The officer, who noticed scraps of food near the boy, added: "The cats knew he was fragile and needed protecting."

"When I walked over they became really protective and spat at me. They were keeping the boy warm while he slept."

Doctors believe the animals snuggled up with him during freezing nights which would otherwise have killed him.

The Telegraph


Police state they have found the boy's father who is homeless and who said he had lost the boy several days ago. He told officers cats had always been protective of his son.

Cats make better foster parents than many humans.

My cat brings me small mammals to feast on occasionally, it's very touching although a little gross.

Cats are man's best friend.

The claim that he lost his baby kinda blows my mind as to how one loses a one year old baby ..... sounds more like the loser just left him there...... These cats have shown more human than human .... As is many cases all threw time and history all kinds of animals have shown great empathy to human beings in great need...

Maybe we need to be more animal to each other because being human often fails

That's one of the most heartwarming stories I've ever read - thanks for sharing!

Interesting that it came up as I've been watching all this 9/11 stuff again with so much focus on the ugliness and so little focus on the care and concern shown by strangers to help others strangers on that day - no color, no religion, no sexual orientation, no agendas - just people helping others in need.

Just like these cats with the baby.

This story sparked something in me. I try not to make broad unknowing, unproven statements, but something inside me tells me this child is important in some way. No matter what you believe dogs are far more likely to behave in this fashion, adopting an orphan, because they are "pack" animals.

The fact that these cats created a pack to keep this child alive, instead of just waiting for him to die and then eating the soft tissues, as cats are known to do with an owner they have known their entire life's, is quite intriguing.

A 1 year old can often walk, if he sleeps on the streets he doesn't have a front door to stop him walking off.

I love how animals have natural instincts about any kind of young animal and seem to know what is needed. Watching grown animals, at times very territorial grown animals respond to a new child in a totally understanding and protective manner is awesome. Too bad so many humans have lost that instinct.

Humans haven't lost it, they just choose to ignore Jesus and because they do not know his ways, they allow these types of things to occur.

I'm sure i'll get flamed for this but oh well, i get treasures for it so i am blessed.

So you say cats wait for people to die and then eat them??? Wow..... Sure people die and cats will eat them, but when they're alive and dying what do you think the cats are supposed to do? Drive them to the hospital or something?

The stupidity of this comment amuses me.

Thinking back to when my little escape artist was one. I guarantee you had I put a leash on him and went to sleep and he woke up while I was still sleeping the leash would be there but he wouldn't be.

I would have never been able to sleep with any of my kids as toddlers had I been on the streets because there would have been no reliable method to keep them contained no matter what.

Kids are scary at that age. They do try to wander off as toddlers. Glad the child had to comfort of those cats.

really why .... think about it well i guess you did and may seem crude but what other option would one have to keep their child safe if living in the street... well my 3 year old can't tie her shoe or pick apart a knot i really don't think she has the dexterity to accomplish such a feat ..... Please .....
( she has a shoe fetish always playing with them ) Also after 4 days of staying up I am sure you would be looking for any means to sleep..

Cats, they have'nt been around as long as they have by being stupid animals. I am owned by six of them, and they all know exactly what I say to them. Yea they have been known to eat a person, only if they are trapped indoors with the deceased. If they have a way out they will find it.

Op stated man was homeless= No money for a leash. Really poor area. I guess some think the man discarded his child. I would like to think he lost him as stated. In this story the cats rein supreme, even to the humans. I have had mine bring me, squirrells, rabbits, moles, snakes, bugs, and skink lizards. All laid out across the porch, I put them in a bag and try not to let the cats see me dispose of it. They don't like that, throwing their gift away stuff.

When my stepson comes over with his daughter whos 10 months, the cats disappear. But when the baby starts to cry, they come out and just sit around Zoey, they never try to touch her, they just sit around the pack N play and watch over her.Until she falls asleep. When she wakes, they just disappear again. We all see this take place, it's not happenstance.

It's MHO that they know how much this baby means to all of us and their just protecting one of their own. It also seems as if at least one of them is in the room at all times while the baby is in the house. I have also noticed if the baby stays the night, there's a whole smorgasboard of dead creatures lined up on the porch the next morning.

Cats & Humans been together a long time. I don't own my cats, they own me.
