    A MARRIED COUPLE who share their city apartment with their pet puma say that they consider the big cat a part of their family. Sergey and Marina Ross, both aged 32, live with their 2-year-old mountain lion, Irma in their apartment in central Moscow. They adopted Irma from a zoo one year ago, after hearing that they intended to put her down because they could no longer afford to keep her. The big cat initially did not allow Sergey or Marina to touch her - but after months of adjusting to her new surroundings, she has eventually learned to love and trust them. Now, the couple have regular cuddles with the 38kg cat and Sergey says that he sometimes even sleeps next to her. To follow their story, click here:

    13. Kathy L

      I wonder what the state of zoos in Russia is that they just sell extra animals or give away animals because they are closing down or something.

    14. Kathy L

      Messi, now Irma. I wonder if scientists in Russia secretly bred domesticated pumas just like with foxes.

    15. Fozo - SV

      *She is absolutely stunning* 🐆

    28. Paulina Dackiw

      These people are GREAT! At least there are some people with common sense and give wild animals a proper life! A life that ANIMALS DESERVE!!!!❤️ Also it IS cruel to keep wild animals in captivity unless you know how to take PROPER care of it! Now don't go running of to find you lion!

    29. Pankaj Tiwari

      Are dogs outdated on this planet these days?


      Did she say don't like black people 😮 B!

    31. Alice Wilde

      You can't even measure how stupid these people are.

    32. Alice Wilde

      Needs a longer lead. She will get really frustrated if they keep her so constrained.

    33. Allieariah Brown

      Did anybody else see that cat drag him down the hill

    34. stormy 1371

      so awesome!

    35. Jai'Lyn Perry

      Is it me that I could’ve sworn that she was thinking “ Omae wa mou shindeiru” to the camera crew @ 2:49 or I’m just tripping🤷🏾‍♂️

    36. Jimbabwe

      2nd russian couple with a puma on this channel

    37. Adora Belle

      True family pets don’t need leashes

    38. hanten10

      you are having the best job in the world. I wish I have a chance too ♥️

    39. Carter Mattson

      only in Russia

    40. Cornell Green

      In Russia, kitty has you for pet.

    41. catsarereallycool

      What a beautiful animal.

    42. Graham Wellington

      She's very beautiful! And it's wonderful that she has such wise and responsible people looking after her.

    43. Cribabi JK

      Literally i_am_puma

    44. Matt M

      Well i have a pair of pumas

    45. AudemarsontheWrist

      I don't like the whole leash thing. This cat needs to roam and jump around a lot more. The fact that it can't go around without a leash says enough for me. I've seen tigers kept as pets, but I didn't really mind because of the huge amount of freedom they had.

    46. Jenn

      She deserves more then an apartment, does not have to be in the wild but absolutly something that mimic's it

      1. Alice Wilde

        I agree, she needs to space to run about.

    47. Raghav Saptarsh

      These people are angels

    48. Wolf Girl

      shes so beautiful (the puma)

    49. Ash

      What do you do when guests come over?

      1. Ash

        Also, does your apartment complex allow Irma? I have so many questions and I am surprised that you guys answered me! Thanks!

      2. Ash

        @@Irma_pumacat Ok! That makes me feel better!

      3. @Irma_pumacat

        Fluffy Irma has her own room in case anyone is afraid. 🙏

    50. Valerie Lusaka

      They may have saved his life, but it would have been better to rehabilitate him in the wild.

      1. @Irma_pumacat

        Valerie Lusaka There was no such an option.

    51. Marc Swanson

      What a beautiful cat. I don't agree with the total ban but I do realize that there are many irresponsible people who should be discouraged from having exotic pets. For that matter, some people shouldn't have any pets at all. When a cat sleeps with you it should be viewed as a privilege. Their presence is comforting (providing the bed is big enough) and has a way of keeping bad dreams at bay.

    52. ZoeyMarcoBK

      That doesn’t seem like enough exercise

    53. Peyton Stout



      Two Cougars


      In Russia we dont own dogs we own mountain lions and polar bears



    57. Igor Sokolov

    58. XxRICH777xX


    59. Chris T

      i want one

    60. Matreshkakate

      are they lying or what, i saw one of russian тv shows about animals ,and they told that Irma is aggressive some times and trying to hunt for man's wife

      1. @Irma_pumacat

        Matreshkakate She is not aggressive. You probably mean one show on NTV - this channel likes to exaggerate to attract audience.

    61. CBK_Snipes_k1ng 11

      in mother russia we have people have a bear as a pet as well a puma this is mother russia

    62. lady godiva

      Wild meat,hmmmm!

    63. Bullterrier’sMOM

      NICE TRY...the blah blah blah she is not wild, doesn’t have the skills...SHE COULD!!! CAN U HEAR ME?? She can be taught all those skills OK???? Take her to a SANCTUARY and they will work with her... have u ever seen the story of OSCAR, the lion born and raised in LONDON back in the 60’s?? Now those were responsible UNSELFISH OWNERS not like u... ok now...next!!!!!

      1. @Irma_pumacat

        Mrs Maddox They cannot be reintroduced even after a brief moment in captivity - 1-3 months would suffice. Let alone Irma who was born in the zoo as well as her parents and for several generations. This is not a topic open for debate, really.

      2. Jade Arnold

        Matreshkakate Zoo animals (at least in good zoos) can lead very enriched lives in captivity (though of course being in the wild would be the best for them if it were possible). Irma being cooped up in an apartment with only an hour average a day of outdoor time (and all while being stuck on a leash) is no healthy life for a cougar. Irma should be with a zoo or sanctuary where she can freely move around within a wide enclosure.

      3. Jade Arnold

        Mrs Maddox Typically, most captive raised big cats are unable to be successfully released back into the wild. Some do survive, yes, but most do not. Here’s some more info: www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2008/01/predators-captivity-habitat-animals/ Regarding captive and orphan cougars, the vast majority of animal rehabs never try to release them back into the wild because they get too familiar with humans and then become a danger to the public. The only options for these cougars are to go to zoos/sanctuaries/wildlife parks or to get put down (or in the case of orphans, left untouched in the wild to let nature take its course).

      4. Matreshkakate

        what about zoo animals , should they also be taken to sanctuary ?

    64. Dan Livni

      Looks like Messi, but its not

    65. Collin

      Nooooo 😗😨🤓😂

    66. Dean Macka

      I reckon you guys are doing a great job she is the city cat of the world lol great stuff guys PS I'm so glad you two ended up with her she couldn't be better looked after great work guys

    67. Calvin Payne

    68. Virasman

      What kind of trend is going on in Russia?!

    69. Romano Perfetti



      MESSI IS THE BEST!!! 😍😍😍

      1. @Irma_pumacat
