MEET the brave couple that share their home with a playful two-year-old COUGAR. In 2016, Alexandr Dmitriev and his wife, Mariya, decided to adopt a young cougar called Messi and raise him as a house-pet in their small, studio apartment in Penza, Russia. Messi follows a strict grooming routine to ensure he doesn’t make too much of a mess around the house - he gets washed in the bath, has his nails trimmed, his teeth checked and he receives a special brush-down every day. The big cat eats twice a day with a diet consisting of turkey, beef, a bit of chicken breast and some bones. And with a growing social media following of 250,000 on Instagram and more than 2 million views on KZbin, Messi has become a local celebrity.

He had rickets from malnourishment when was still a cub, and therefore grew smaller than usual. Also, he spent his cubhood in a cold enclosure and got a chronic cystitis. He's better now in this regard, but they still have to look after him so nothing would relapse.

They seem like a lovely couple and i am sure their big cat live a good life. However, i feel a bit worried. There is a wild side in this animal and even Messis smaller relatives can bite really hard when they wan't to. I must add that i love all cats, i adore them, it's just that neither of them are really domesticated. I hope i am wrong about Messi of course. 🙂

I just finished watching a guy with a giant tom about 50 ft away from him eyeing him up like he was a black-tailed deer. Beautiful creatures, but i would be too paranoid around that... even if 'domesticated'.

I mean theyre lucky it's a cute mini me version of a cougar. Them shits in the wild are terrifying, when they yell it sounds like a screaming woman and they will hunt people for food if need be.
