Now you are about to read another such pawsome unexpected friendship story.
Meet this young cat who decided to befriend a lynx and then there was no turning back!
Everyone knows that once cats decide to do something, they don’t stop till the time they achieve it all. In fact, cats always have what they want. Have you heard about Eurasian Lynx before? If not, then there is nothing to worry about because we will tell you all about it.
The Eurasian Lynx is a medium-sized wild cat who usually preys on all kinds of birds and mammals. These lynx have a very diverse diet including wild boars, hares, squirrels, foxes, deer, etc. You name it and these lynx would have had it all.
For a lynx, even a cat would be delicious enough to eat. But this time, things turned out to be really different. It is not easy to go against a cat’s wish. This incident took place a few years back when a stray calico wandered into the St. Petersburg zoo. The cat was wandering around carefree. While wandering around the zoo, the cat reached the lynx enclosure.
The lynx was pacing back and forth inside his enclosure. This doesn’t happen usually with the wild cats, but it seems like the enclosures are the reason for this.
The most common reason big cats, like tigers, lions, panthers, etc. tend to pace back and forth when they are in their enclosure because they are stressed.
But the mysterious question is why would a tiny calico kitty enter into the lynx enclosure. Some people speculated that the lynx would attack the cat. But cats are known to bring down stress levels in humans as well as other animals. So maybe instead of eating the cat, the lynx decided to become friends with the cat.
The lynx approached the cat and started licking him. There are other things that are more important than hunger also at times. The lynx valued friendship more than his hunger and this is how he found himself a pawsome friend.
