Animal pictures of the week: 25 March 2011

This is the cutest picture I have ever come across

This newborn chick, who is just a few weeks old, has apparently struck up an unlikely  friendship with a kitten who helps protect her from pesky vermin. Sergey Dmitriev, from Barnaul, Russia, said: 'We want to help restore the ancient Pavlovskaya hens because they are a very rare breed. Sometimes they can get attacked by rats and mice who get into the coops and kill them. We usually have to protect them like they are our own children - but recently our pet cat Mikeal has protected them for us. He will follow them everywhere they go whenever we let them out to make sure they are safe.'
