Amazing Monkey Adopts A Kitten :
A young long tailed macaque monkey has been spotted in a forest protectively nuzzling and grooming a ginger kitten and making sure no harm came to it. The extraordinary sight was captured by amateur photographer Anne Young while on holiday at the Monkey Forest Park, in the Ubud region of Bali, Indonesia.
The monkey would become agitated if Anne ventured too near to take pictures and at one point used a huge leaf to try and cover the kitten from view. The monkey was even cautious of other macaques and would not allow other young males to get too close.
The kitten enjoyed the attention being lavished on it by its protector and makee no effort to leave. It is considered sacred by locals and visited by about 10,000 tourists each month. It is not known how the cat came to be in the company of the macaque monkey.
