This monkey has adopted a stray kitten as its own

Anne Young, an amateur wildlife photographer (and, possibly, luckiest person in the world) was visiting the Monkey Forest Park in Ubud, in Bali, Indonesia, when she spotted a wild long-tailed Macaque snuggling with a kitten.  She realized that the monkey had adopted the ginger cat as its own, and the two hung out as father and child, creating some of the cutest photographs that have ever existed.

Young said that the monkey was very protective of the kitten when she tried to photograph them, but she managed to get some great shots.

Here we see the two snuggling casually:
