It’s not a single day task to understand cats. People can’t get what their cats want even after living them with them for ages. Cats like to stay unpredictable and surprise everyone.
Meet Alisa Kirichenko, a felinologist, who has researched on cats for years.
She started getting close to cats twelve years ago. Her parents moved into a new place and kept the policy of no pets in their home. But Alisa had other plans. She showed the picture of a beautiful Maine Coon to her mother and convinced her to adopt it.
Here’s the beautiful Maine Coon adopted from Alisa and her family. The kitten was originally from Poland.
