Russian man keeps lynx as pet

Cat has been living with him for 6 years

A Moscow man has been found to be keeping a tame lynx in his apartment as a pet, UPI reports.

Alexander Lyubarskiy has had his pet Lynx, Lyxy, living in his apartment for six years. He says the cat is friendly and gentle with children and enjoys walks and being on the balcony outside of the apartment.

Lyubarskiy says he purchased Lynxy from the fur farm, which probably saved her from being killed for clothing.
