A baboon at an Israeli petting zoo has adopted a tiny kitten that recently strayed into its cage. Video released by the zoo shows the baboon caring for the kitten, stroking it and checking its fur for fleas as it would care for its own infant. One report says the kitten refuses to leave the cage.

I am concerned all the way around. The baboon and kitten truly need each other but is there any good nutrition for that kitten? At one point it looks like the kitten wants to suckle but the baboon diverts the kitten before that happens. Petting zoos are notorious for poor conditions and sickly animals
How is the kitten EATING? This is a major concern!
what kind of a kitten is this? have never seen such ears in my life. looks like some sort of fox. and this place is horrible to keep the baboon in. primates are very intelligent creatures and this guy is living in a dungeon. how horrible. and who is seeiing that the kitten get fed regular meals? this is scary
The kitten will probably starve to death or die of dehydration. It should be removed from the cage.
