A feline has made an unexpected visit to a zoo and developed an unlikely friendship with a lynx. The cat snuck into the zoo, possibly in search of food or shelter, and found itself face-to-face with a lynx. Instead of attacking each other, the two animals hit it off and became fast friends. It’s not every day that you see different species forming such close bonds, but this story is proof that anything is possible in the animal kingdom.
Friendships can form between animals of different species just like humans. The St. Petersburg Zoo is home to an unlikely duo who have become inseparable friends, a European lynx and a domestic Russian cat.
Love Meow reported that a stray cat stumbled upon the territory of a lynx and discovered some food. Surprisingly, the lynx was not bothered by the visitor and even formed a close friendship with the feline.
Love Meow reports that the cat and lynx have formed a unique bond, where they seem to rely on each other equally. According to sources, the cat views the lynx as a maternal figure, as she was still a young kitten when she initially became acquainted with her unlikely companion.
The Zoo took notice of their heartwarming bond and decided to officially adopt the cat so that they could continue living together, which they happily do to this day.
