A stray calico cat recently wandered into Russia's Leningrad Zoo. He was looking for food, but he ended up finding a friend.

The feline somehow got into the zoo's lynx enclosure and bonded with the large cat. The two now groom each other and nap together.

Zookeepers didn't have the heart to separate them, so now the zoo has adopted the stray.
