Russian cat makes shocking impression, with 31K followers on Instagram

October 6, 2021

Fedya, who has his own Instagram account—@fedjakot—with 31,000 followers, was found in his owner’s backyard in Rostov, Russia, nearly two years ago, according to British news agency SWNS.

 According to The Toronto Sun, Natalia Zhdanova found the kitty when he was only one week old and struggling to survive and him in—noticing the misaligned eyes created a permanently shocked expression.

“We’re not sure if it’s a genetic deformity or if he was dropped by his mum as a kitten,” Zhdanova said.  “Now he is much healthier. He is a very sweet, gentle, playful, and intelligent cat. He purrs very loudly.”

The kitty, who is now 21 months old, was nursed back to health with the help of a neighbor’s cat, named Handsome, who came over daily.

“Handsome cleaned and licked Fedya and became like a father figure to him,” Zhdanova told SWNS.

 Zhdanova, who makes educational books for children in Rostov, added: “He is inseparable with Handsome. They are the best of friends.”
