Messi has an interesting history.
He was a purebred litter when he was born at the Saransk Zoo in Penza along with his brothers Suarez and Neymar.
He also had serious health problems that prevented him from living in a wildlife sanctuary or even a zoo. With the exception of wild releases, they are not native to Russia.
Messi will have to grow up in captivity because he cannot survive in the wild.
Due to the lack of other options, the zoo owners decided to euthanize Messi. But then there were Alexander and Maria. Maria always wanted to have a huge cat as a pet.
When the couple saw Messi, it was love at first sight. When they became aware of Messi’s plight, they began to consider adopting him as their own.
