A young boy was kept alive by wild cats while living rough on the streets, it emerged today.
The one-year-old, whose ordeal mirrors Jungle Book character Mowgli, was discovered by police in Misiones, in Argentina, surrounded by eight of the animals.
The cats snuggled up with him during freezing nights that would otherwise have killed him, doctors believe.
