When he was barely three months old, Messi (the huge exotic cat, not the skillful and recognized pro player) was sold to a petting zoo in Penza.

He was a little shorter than normal. He was suffering from health problems. He wouldn’t be able to live in a zoo. He couldn’t even survive in a wildlife refuge. Staff at the petting zoo were considering putting the wild cat to sleep.

That’s when Aleksandr and Mariya arrived to save the sweet cat.

When the pair first met the wild animal, they felt it was “love at first sight,” according to the couple. After much deliberation regarding the ethics and practicality of maintaining such a large cat at home, they decided to purchase him.

They nursed Messi back to health after bringing him back with them. Although Aleksandr and Mariya appear to be pleased with their new addition to the family, Messi does not get along with the couple’s cat Kira.
