Animal Animal Rescues Cat Other Pets

A close friendship between the cat and the lion cub

Golden male cat Arnie and lion girl Zara have formed a strange friendship at Linton Zoo in Cambridgeshire, England.


Arnie helps Zara wash and brush her hair, like a real mother. Zara was abandoned by her mother when she was 2 days old. Arnie herself was also a “lost child”.



When he was only 10 days old, Zara weighed only 0.9 kg, now he has reached 4.5 kg and is growing more and more. Zara will be several times the size of the cat Arnie. Therefore, one day, people will have to divide the couple and bring the lion to the Wildlife Education Center in Uganda.
