Meeting a cat named Perseya and a mouse named Filya formed a unique relationship
Perseya was adopted when she was still a kitten. Born a rat-catcher, she was taught to hunt mice because they were not given proper food. People often question the decision to bring home a rat-catcher for fear that it will kill all the rats.
Despite being born to a rat-catcher, Irina adopted Perseya and allowed her to live with her rats.
When Perseya was first adopted, another cat named Barsa did not accept her, but she was adopted by a rat named Kuzya, who has since passed away.
“When I brought her home, she was 2 months old and lived with another cat named Barsa. Barsa was unkind to her, growling and hissing, but Perseya was saved by Kuzya, the smartest rat I’ve ever had. Kuzya sheltered Perseya and they quickly became inseparable. Unfortunately, Kuzya passed away a month later.”
Irina then brought home a 1-month-old rat named Filya, which Persona immediately adopted. “On January 7, 2022, I brought home a 1-month-old rat named Filya. Perseya immediately adopted him and adopted him as her son. Filya is fearless and loves to play with Perseya’s toys”. Irina shared: “They will chase each other with teasing toys, especially fish toys.”
Irina writes that she once forgot to lock the mouse cage and Filya escaped. He spent the day with the cats, playing, eating food and drinking from their bowls.
“One day, while going to work, I forgot to lock the mouse cage and Filya escaped. He spent the day with the cats, running around, eating food and drinking from their bowls. When I got home, I saw Filya running around and the cats sprawled on the bed. “
Irina shared “now, Filya is 6 months old and can’t live without Perseya”
Every night, he ran up to her and started kissing her. Filya is a very lovable rat, while the other two are content to stay in their cages. Barsa remained indifferent to Filya. In recent times, Filya has started giving Perseya loving snaps and they cuddle, Filya burying himself in her fur, and sometimes even making her purr.
