He’s absolutely gorgeous
He’s not being spoilt he’s being loved and cared!
A Russian couple share their tiny apartment with a large, unusual companion. He is named Messi. He was one of three cubs born at the zoo. The other two, Suarez and Neymar, were also named after famous players.
When he was just a three months old cub, Messi was sold to the Saransk Zoo. Here he “str.uggled with he.alth iss.ues”.
Mariya and Aleksandr have fallen in love with the puma at first sight. So they [de.cided to app.eal] to the zoo in [or.der to bu.y] him.
According to his wife Mariya, Aleksandr, 38, had always dreamed of owning a big cat.
Mariya said: Taking care of Messi was a big challenge for Dmitriev family. Beside he’s a wild animal, the puma also needed medical attention.
Aleksandr said: Messi need a lot of attention. He also requires lots of exercise. For this reason, his human parents [purc.hased] a special coat and harness so they can take him on walks. He is like a dog. We started taking him for a walk, step by step.
Now we walk a lot twice a day, as it’s supposed to be. It doesn’t differ much from owning a dog in this sense.
Aleksandr says: He convinced us with his behavior that he’s a full member of our family and that he wouldn’t be doing anything bad apart from some small naughty things. He’s very kind and likes contact. He gets on very well with people.
That’s awesome. We wish who ever has the big baby all the best Love and hugs.
Absolutely gorgeous and a lucky cat…!
What a big happy Pussycat you show love an kindness to eany animal an you get so much love back just like people who doesn’t like a hug an somewhere warm to sleep an something to eat…
So glad she is healthy now and they are able to give her a good, loving life. She looks so content. Most of us would love to have a cat like Messi. The size of those paws is amazing.
Although, He looks like a good boy! He has a comfortable life for sure!
