This is an incredible story I came across:

A wild-long tailed macaque monkey has adopted an abandoned kitten at Ubud’s Monkey Forest in Bali.   The reserve has 340 monkeys in four groups living there.  It is considered sacred and it is frequented by 10,000 people every month.  The kitten seems to love the attention being given to her by the monkey.

This macaque is so protective that he doesn’t allow other macaques to even come close to the kitten.

According to the photographer: The monkey didn’t like it when she tried to take pictures, shielding the kitten from the lens.

She loves his company and doesn’t complain the love showered on her.
