At that time, Aleksandr always had a dream to have a big cat. In case, he and his wife, Mariya kept an exotic pet like that in the house, it wasn’t an easy thing to do. However, with the strong desire, they decided to go to the zoo and began negotiation to buy Messi, which led to a good result for both buyer and the zoo.

At first, because of weak health, Messi needed much medical attention and care. No matter how good treatment was, this big cat was just only two-thirds of the size of the average puma.
