Couple Share Studio Flat With A Cougar | BEAST BUDDIES
Spread The Viralist

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 YouTube, Messi has become a local celebrity.

  1. Imagine u take it in the wrong context when your friend says my neighbour is a cougar and get all sort horny ideas?

  2. Ребята, какие Вы молодцы! Какие Вы классные! Счастья Вам всем троим, здоровья и всех-всех благ!

    That’s literally how my dog acts when I’m eating or getting food from the kitchen. She just has to take some. I give her some anyway cause she’s fricking cute.

  4. That last line was beautiful. “How can you explain why you love someone?” They seem like a couple of romantics that fell in love with a cougar.

  5. This is NOT OK!!!!! It doesn't matter how much you give it love! The puma will always be wild!!! And that they have teach it to sit.. In one or another this is cruelty!!! The are not mean to be pets!! So please stop have them as pets!! #savebigcats!!
