Disney princesses have a long-standing reputation of having animals as friends. Princess Jasmine had a very loyal tiger as her sidekick. Ariel had a timid fish as her best friend. And, of course, Snow White had a way of attracting all of the forest animals to her side. Some humans have been known to have a special connection with animals. A connection so strong that others would consider it to be magical. What you don’t usually hear about, is animals having that same kind of connection with other animals. This very unique cat has a knack for doing just that!His human parents found him at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. He’s a Siberian Forest Cat and certainly lives up to that name.
He may be an indoor cat, but he loves going for walks with his dad. Even when he’s inside, Sochi will sit by the window for hours to see what’s going on.
His parents would find him in the morning sitting by the window, with some sort of animal on the other side. Sochi would wave at his squirrel friends, trying to get their attention.
His parents set up a bird feeder to try to make Sochi some more friends. They were completely surprised when a deer stopped by to say hello!
“He has befriended one deer, about four squirrels, and an endless supply of birdies. He likes to watch them from his perch every morning, his daily routine,” says Sochi’s dad.
“He has a regal personality and is definitely the boss of the house. He is also extremely loving and expects pets immediately after someone comes home,” explains his dad.
