Meet Fedya, Instragram’s newest feline star.
The playful cat with a permanently surprised look on his face was just a week old when he was separated from his mom last year. Natalia Zhdanova heard his cries and found him alone, hungry and sick in her backyard in Rostov, Russia.
With help from her neighbor’s cat, Handsome, Zhdanova nursed Fedya back to health, and now the little guy is up to a healthy weight and thriving at 18 months old.
“He was very weak and was dying,” Zhdanova told the UK’s SWNS wire. “Handsome cleaned and licked Fedya and became like a father figure to him.”
The two cats are now “the best of friends,” and Zhdanova said Fedya “purrs very loudly” for her and Handsome.
“He is a very sweet, gentle, playful, and intelligent cat,” she said.
