Cats are often thought of as solitary animals that have a hard time relating to others or showing affection, but this is not always the case. The mischievous kitten in this story has shown great ability to relate to any feline, even a “dangerous” lynx. And it is that no matter what type of animal it is, sincere friendships develop equally.
It all happened at the St. Petersburg Zoo, when a European lynx became best friends with a homeless domestic Russian kitten, who came to the place in search of food and a warm roof where she could sleep.
“It seems that the kitten needs the lynx as much as he needs her,” said zoo staff.
The reason behind this unique friendship is that the kitten thinks that the lynx is her mother, because when she met him she was too young and she was sorely missing a mother figure in her life, as happens with any unprotected newborn.
Fortunately, realizing this beautiful friendship, the zoo decided to officially adopt the defenseless kitten so that both animals could live next to each other and enjoy every moment together.
“It is because all animals are looking for a mate. It is bad to keep animals in captivity so that people can go to see them, it is better to keep them in pairs so that they can also have company, “commented an Internet user.
The images of the felines being together speak for themselves. They don’t stop kissing and snuggling; while her eyes reflect a complex sense of happiness and satisfaction.
The lynx lets himself be filled with love for the kitten, even closing his eyes when she kisses him and joining in at all times in the tender games of the innocent feline. They put their two heads together as if they never want to separate and give us the best hug in the world.
“What a beautiful lynx. What happiness that they get along so well and that the zoo has adopted the cat, “said another netizen.
Their incredible friendship has gone viral through an emotional video in which the great affection they have is appreciated, demonstrating that when friendship is sincere it goes beyond species, size, color, gender or species that you have.
Without a doubt, the days at the zoo for this protective lynx are the best since he lives accompanied by his loyal friend who makes him feel with her love the freedom he does not possess.
