Meet Messi: A Puma Who Lives in a Cozy Russian Apartment

Sasha and Masha from Penza, Russia have an extraordinary pet. The couple shares their home with a two-year-old puma named Messi.

Messi is 30% smaller than the regular puma and because of that he can’t live in the wild; he would be an easy target to other dangerous animals. Sasha and Masha bought him from a zoo and he instantly became a very important member of their small family.

The trio lives in a regular apartment and Messi has its organized, cozy corner. They have daily walks and the feline has a properly balanced diet full of meat.

The little family is very popular all over the Internet; they have an Instagram account with more than 500k followers and a YouTube channel where they share Messi’s adventures.

Check out Messi’s adorable photos below.

Месси выбрал себе новые матрасики и поблагодарил любимого Па)) Продавцы в нашей любимой Зооландии просто растаяли🤗 Как здорово, что можно прийти в магазин вместе со своим любимцем и на месте померить и подобрать подходящий размер👍 . Messi chose a new mattress for himself and thanked the beloved Pa)) The sellers in our beloved Zooland simply melted🤗 How great it is that you can come to the store with your pet and try on the spot and find the right size👍 #kitten#kittens#instapet#mycat#catlover#animal#animals#cat#cats#puma#myfamily#pet#pets#messi#семья#кот#котенок#кошка#mypet#lovecat#lovecats#zoo#instacat#instacats#котик#котэ#meow #kitty#iampuma#пумамесси
