Cat forms unlikely friendship with lynx in zoo

Don't be surprised if you see a cat in the lynx enclosure at the St Petersburg Zoo in Russia. The tiny feline belongs there.

No, the zoo keepers aren't trying to pass the cat off as a lynx. 

The stray wandered into the enclosure one day and hasn't left since. 

It struck up an unlikely friendship with the resident animal and keepers haven't had the heart to separate them.

The two nap together and groom each other.


Awww... aren't they just adorable?
