They say love abounds in the most unexpected places. This 10-year-old cat can certainly attest to this, having become best friends with a small creature that chirps a lot... Yasha is a tiny budgie who has imprinted on the senior ginger cat, Bonifazii. The bird follows him around wherever he goes, and the two have been inseparable since day one.
When Yasha was welcomed into the family, Bonifazii immediately made her feel comfortable and acted very kind and gentle towards her. Over the years, the pair has continued to grow closer and more comfortable with each other. The budgie even started a fun game where she climbs the feline's back and hitches rides around the house.
Every morning, she sings songs to the cat with her lovely chirp and he listens calmly. They also love to invent new games - Yasha will fly around in a circle while Bonifazii jumps around and tries to catch her!
"They have been together for five years," says their human, Irina. "They chase each other all over the apartment. We have a lot of fun." They can't stay away from each other for more than a few moments. They also want to know where the other one is in the apartment. Bonifazii will take a nap and Yasha joins him immediately, sometimes keeping him out of sleep with all the cuddling.
