A stray house cat is now the talk of the St. Petersburg Zoo after it broke into the enclosure of a European Lynx.

Instead of turning on the calico kitty, the powerful lynx decided to share its food with the hungry stray, and the two soon became best friends.

Visitors at the zoo can see the two grooming each other and generally hanging out, a rare animal friendship between one that likely wanted out, and another that wanted in.
