Many of us may adopt stray animals out of kindness. Just like this Russian farmer who has a kind heart. One day he went to his barn and he found 4 cute kittens. It looked like they were newborn and were cuddling together to keep warm. As the days get colder it was going to be harder to find food so the farmer decided to adopt these kittens and gave them a good home to live in.
These little kitties were so fluffy and he thought they were just ordinary kittens
To raise them up the farmer thought and searched for methods to feed milk to these kittens
As these kittens slowly grew bigger he noticed something unusual about them
They do not look like normal household cats as they have a very fluffy body and tail with short legs….. it does not look anything like a normal cat at all.
He called Daursky, a nature reserve staff and invited him over to have a look at his adopted kittens so they can ascertain their species
When Daursky came over he was able to identify that these kittens were actually a protected species known as the manul cat or commonly known as pallas cats. These cats usually survive in cold and high altitudes areas.
They belong to the cat family but they are not your regular household cats as they are wild cats
Pallas cats are very rare and this farmer must not rear them at home.
When they are independent enough to survive on their own he will have to release them back into the wild
They are starting to consume meat now and are almost ready to be released back into the wild
The farmer never knew they were such exquisite and rare animals.
Although he doesn’t want to give up these cats but finally he decided to release them
Although these pallas cats do not have the experience in hunting but after releasing them back to the wild and start living on their own and hopefully they will rediscover their wild instinct to hunt.
The body size of an adult pallas cat is similar to the size of a household cat but their thick fluffy fur makes them larger by a few sizes
Pallas cats prefer the cold and arid environments of rocky steppes and grasslands at elevations up to 15,000 feet. They are territorial animals and they tend to live independently. This farmer has raised them from childhood and to him, they are just normal household cats that needed to be loved. After returning them to nature, they will not forget the happy memories they had with the farmer.
