Russia: Tiger feat saves cub’s life

IT may not have had a purrfect start to life - but this mini beast is feline fine, thanks to this cat’s tiger feat.

One of a pair of Siberian tiger cubs is pictured here playing with cat Masyanya in the house of Yekaterina Khodakova, in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

The cubs were born in late May in a small zoo in Sochi, but their mother refused to feed them. Fewer than 400 Siberian tigers have survived in the wild, most of them in the cedar forests of Russia’s Far East.
