She was just a stray cat. He was just a lynx at the St. Petersburg zoo. Together they would form a loving bond that would melt the collective hearts of the Internet.
Normally when a cat spies a giant wild lynx, they run the other way. But this particular cat was different. When she wandered into the enclosure areas at the St. Petersburg zoo, she fell instantly in love with the big cat she found there.
Jumping into the enclosure, she begins to groom her new paramour, and he returns her affection in full force. The moment is one of the sweetest we’ve seen in a long time, and left us in a puddle on the floor, right before we hit replay to watch it again.
