Russia is a cold, dark, terrifying, harsh, and fascinating country. It is a land of stark contrasts, vast geography, and an incredible and long history. It is also home to what is arguably the cutest zoo exhibit on earth right now. A Russian stray cat has made friends with a lynx at one of the exhibits.

Nestled in the stunningly beautiful city of Saint Petersburg, Russia, there is a lovely European zoo that features many animals for your viewing pleasure. One day, a stray cat made her way to the lynx enclosure. Instead of removing her, the zoo more or less adopted her. Zookeepers named her “Darling” and she and “Linda” the lynx have become inseparable!
