At that point, the zoo officials decided to let the kitty stay. They named her Dusya, and her and Linda (the lynx) became inseparable in the following years. Thousands of people came to see the cats living together, with the zoo constantly releasing videos of their time spent together.
In 2014, the zoo published an amazing video showing Linda and Dusya grooming each other. To be honest, it’s among the cutest things we’ve ever seen. Of course, the video went viral almost immediately – it was obvious that people are touched by this unusual friendship.
