Puma Rescued From A Con.tact-Type Zoo Can’t Be Relea.sed Into The Wild. Maybe He Forgot He Was A Puma!💖
Meet Messi The Puma!💖
“The cougar (Puma concolor) is a large cat native to the Americas. Its range spans from the Canadian Yukon to the southern Andes in South America and is the most widespread of any large wild terrestrial mammal in the Western Hemisphere. It is an adaptable, generalist species, occurring in most American habitat types. Due to its wide range, it has many names, including puma, mountain lion, catamount and panther.“
The story below is definitely referring to a cougar, but he has forgotten that he belongs in the wild.
A Russian couple share their tiny apartment with a large, unusual companion. He is named ‘Messi’. He was one of three cubs born at the zoo. The other two, Suarez and Neymar, definitely a soccer team in the zoo .
Once A Cat, Always A Cat!💖
Messi came to the zoo when he was only three months old. Puma was suffering with health problems so ‘Dmitriev’ asked the owners if they would be wil.li.ng to sell him.
Messi lives with Aleksandr and Mariya Dmitriev.💖
Though Messi’s known as their “kitten,” keeping it is more like taking care of a doggo than a catto. For example, it had to be trained at a dog training facility.
Aleksandr says: He convinced us with his behavior that he’s a full member of our family and that he wouldn’t be doing anything bad apart from some small naughty things.
Messi very kind and likes contact.
Now we walk a lot twice a day, as it’s supposed to be. It doesn’t differ much from owning a dog in this sense.
It’s so happy when we show love in a kind way to many animals that you get a lot of love like people who don’t like to cuddle a warm place to sleep something… 😍
But a puma isn’t enough for the Dmitrievs—they have plans to adopt a leopard. Because Messi needs a friend. Might we suggest naming it Ronaldo?
He looks like a good boy! He has a comfortable life for sure!🥰
But we should also be careful when raising wild animals and memory gives enough food.
