As someone who loves cats, it may come as a surprise that I am now the proud caregiver of eight dogs. My pack consists of six huskies, a Samoyed dog, and a Northern Inuit dog. While I would have loved to adopt a kitten, my furry companions made this impossible. However, I wasn’t going to let this deter me from having a feline in my life. I decided to search for a cat that could coexist with my canine family. In my quest to find a suitable cat, I stumbled upon the shocking realization that fur farms still exist in my country. These farms breed lynxes solely for their fur, which is highly coveted in Russia. But, to my relief, it is legal to take a baby lynx from these farms and raise it as a pet. Without hesitation, I took in a cute lynx cub who was destined to be nothing more than a fur coat. Naming him Geralt, after the protagonist in the popular video game The Witcher, was an easy decision.
Surprisingly, the dogs proved to be quite useful in looking after Geralt. They kept the kitten entertained with their playful antics and allowed him to nibble on their ears and rest on their bellies without any objections. Additionally, they generously shared their food with him, allowing him to sneak a few bites now and then.
Banshee, our senior dog, kindly took care of a little lynx kitten.
As Geralt grew older, his playful side emerged and he quickly became the star of every husky get-together.
Moreover, he shares a great bond with my equine companion, Texas!
Following a difficult journey, I dedicated myself to nurturing and instructing him with outstanding results. He possesses an extraordinary combination of feline and canine qualities.
He’s a massive fluffy creature with a clumsy demeanor.
When Geralt was just a year old, I was able to rescue an adorable female kitten who became his new feline friend and companion.
Bulochka was given her name because of her endearing personality, as the term “bun” represents sweetness in our culture.
In their natural habitat, lynxes are typically solitary animals, which led me to believe that my feline friends would also lead separate lives. But, to my delight, I was proven wrong when Geralt welcomed little Bulochka into his life with open paws, treating her as if she were his own kin.

While brainstorming names for our new pet, our friends jokingly proposed the name “Ciri” as an alternative to our original choice of “Bulochka.”
Since that particular moment, my lynxes have become the best of friends and are always found together. Just look at how sweetly they sleep with their cute little noses!
From my personal experience of raising two lynxes, I can confirm that ensuring their good health is one of the most challenging aspects of rescuing these wild animals.
The primary objective of fur farms is to breed animals, but it’s sad to note that this often results in the sacrifice of their health and welfare.
Luckily, Geralt has only experienced a fractured elbow and a stubbed toe during his years on this earth, which points to his overall robust health.
Teaching and taming a lynx is not as difficult as one might think. With some basic training in using a litter box and walking on a leash, it can be easily accomplished.
These creatures also emit a gentle purr, much like domesticated felines, but with a more distinct volume.
At present, I am thoroughly enjoying my existence alongside my lynxes, huskies, and horses. Additionally, I take immense pleasure in aiding individuals who have opted to rescue massive felids and then nurture and domesticate them.
I can’t wait for the new year to arrive because I might have a chance to rescue another cute little lynx cub from a fur farm.
