In Russia sometimes they dare to have wild animals like pets.
There are no any law regulations on what pets you can keep and what you can’t, no PETA, no need to pick up your little friend’s poo in special bags. You can walk with your pet anywhere on the street or public park, no any single “no pets allowed” signs outside. Some call it chaos others call it freedom, you decide yourself.
Meanwhile some photos of such wild pet living with people in just a small regular flat in big multistored building.
The cat on the pictures is so called Fishing Cat, you can read more on those at Wiki. It’s not very common in Russia, and might have been brought from some distant parts like Tajikistan by Russian soldier.
