Cat Saves Panda

12:30 PM -- A touching tale of inter-species cooperation, from BBC News:

    A Dutch tabby cat has adopted a red panda cub, which was abandoned by its mother at a zoo in the Netherlands.

    The adult panda, Gladys, rejected two cubs after they were born on 30 June...
They named her "Gladys"? No wonder she's got an attitude.

    But the zookeeper's cat had just given birth to four kittens, and allowed the pandas to join the litter. One of the cubs died last week.

    Red pandas are a rare species only distantly related to giant pandas.

    When fully grown, they are not much bigger than a domestic cat.
But we're much prettier. Smarter, too. And we won't eat your canary.
