Russia: Imagine the size of the litter box! Moscow man keeps LYNX in his FLAT  

Moscow resident Alexander Lyubarskiy could be seen playing with his domesticated lynx in the Russian capital, Tuesday, after having lived with the animal in his apartment for over six years.

As the large cat strolled around the owner’s apartment, Lyubarskiy explained the reason why he had decided to keep such an unusual pet; “Once I saw a lynx being shot during hunting. They were hunting a boar but a lynx came out. I do not know why, but one hunter killed her. It hurt my feelings and I became interested [in lynxes]. I went to an animal farm and saw how they live there, talked to the animal technicians and decided to buy one.”

Lyubarskiy’s feline friend reportedly prefers to spend the majority of its time on the apartment balcony, especially during the wintertime where it can take in the cold, dry air an observe passing cars and people.

SOT, Alexander Lyubarskiy, the owner (Russian): "Once I saw a lynx being shot while hunting. They were hunting a boar but a lynx came out. I do not know why, but a hunter killed her. It hurt my feelings and I became interested [in lynxes]. I went to an animal farm and saw how they live there, talked to the animal technicians and decided to buy one."

SOT, Alexander Lyubarskiy, the owner (Russian): "It doesn't like it when it's wet, but [it does] when it it is frosty. How many degrees was it [recently]? It was about -27 or 28 [degrees Celsius]. I could not force it back into the apartment. I was like ‘Come in!’, but it did not, it was lying there and sleeping. It was lying there curled up and we did not see it until the evening. In the evening, it came back, had some time with us, ate chicken and went back there. It is interesting there, the cars are driving, the people are walking and it can clearly watch things from there. So he sits there. People come and take photographs from below."
