Jamil Bin Ismail, 48, is an animal rescuer, who filmed the footage after finding the stray kitten in a car park whilst driving with his monkey Shaki.

Jamal, from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, said: “I have been rescuing stray animals for almost 22 years now.

“Shaki was a rescue that I found, as was this kitten – I now have almost 214 stray cats under my care.

“I found the kitten in that very same parking lot where I filmed the video, and I am now looking after it.

“Shaki and the kitten are now best of friends, and they even sleep together which is really cute to see.

“My YouTube page Bbcatlover documents the journey between Shaki and all the cats I rescue – she’s such a gentle monkey and really cares for all of them.”
