SAINT PETERSBURG, Russia — A house cat is now the talk of the Leningrad Zoo after it broke into the enclosure of a European Lynx.

According to the Love Meow blog, locals say the cat was a stray and happened to find food in the lynx’s enclosure. Instead of attacking the cat, the much larger and more powerful lynx decided to share its food and the two soon became friends.

The zoo has now adopted the cat so that she and her lynx friend can live together.
