This touching photo from the aftermath of the August 2014 earthquake in China’s Yunnan province shows a tender scene with a child and the kitten he is cuddling.

The little boy cuddles with the kitten as he rests under a shelter in the earthquake zone in Ludian county, Yunnan province, on Aug 5.

The magnitude 6.1 earthquake hit on August 3, killing more than 600 people and injuring more than 2,500. Tens of thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed.

The kitten and the little boy provided some comfort and security for one another amid the devastation during the surreal and disturbing time.
