You won't believe why this cat was caught breaking into a zoo

Something is melting hearts in Siberia and across the globe. It's the story of an unlikely friendship that formed despite all odds and one that traverses species.
A calico cat was found sneaking into the Leningrad (St. Petersburg) Zoo in Russia. According to KFOR, the stray was hungry and snuck in to steal food. The cat just so happened to be breaking into the lynx enclosure — and no one could have predicted what would happen when the two animals met face-to-face: They became inseparable!

The lynx accepted the calico as her own. The resulting snuggle-fest, which you can catch a glimpse of in the video below, will melt your heart.
The domestic feline and the lynx quickly became BFFs and were soon caught hanging out together by zoo staff. Workers had no choice but to adopt the little stray cat as their own (or, more accurately, as the lynx's own) and keep her with her new best bud.
