A long tailed macaque monkey adopts a kitten in the forests of Bali, Indonesia

Amazing Monkey Adopts A Kitten

A young long tailed macaque monkey has been spotted in a forest protectively nuzzling and grooming a ginger kitten and making sure no harm came to it. The extraordinary sight was captured by amateur photographer Anne Young while on holiday at the Monkey Forest Park, in the Ubud region of Bali, Indonesia

During the remarkable moments the monkey would become agitated if Anne ventured too near to take pictures and at one point used a huge leaf to try and cover the kitten from view

The monkey was even wary of other macaques and would not allow other young males to get too close

Throughout the session the kitten enjoyed the attention being lavished on it by its protective carer and made no effort to leave

The reserve is inhabited by about 340 monkeys in four groups. It is considered sacred by locals and visited by about 10,000 tourists each month

It is not known how the cat came to be in the company of the macaques
