Vadim Veligurov found a baby sparrow abandoned after she hatched in his home city in northern Russia, and, from that day on, the two have been inseparable.
Veligurov, 12, found the small bird abandoned after she hatched in Dudinka, the administrative capital of the Taymyr Peninsula in northern Russia.
According to Yahoo!, Veligurov took the chick to his grandmother’s house in Minusinsk where he was spending his summer holidays.
The young boy’s goal was to nurse the baby bird until she was healthy enough to live on her own and then set her free.
Setting a little animal free, one you’ve loved and cared for for any amount of time, can be difficult.
But when the sad day came to set the little sparrow free, little Abi decided to stay with Veligurov instead of flying away.
According to Metro, little Abi and Veligurov are inseparable. The bird will sit on the boy’s shoulder, eat out of his hand, and even share a little birdy kiss with the boy.
In other pet related news, The Inquisitr reported earlier on the shooting of the shooting of an African serval cat in Detroit Michigan.
The cat was a 3-year-old Savannah cat nicknamed “Chum” and weighed 25 pounds. A savannah cat is a cross between an African servel cat and a domestic cat.
The owners of the African serval cat are reportedly devastated by the loss of their pet, which they had raised since it was four months old.
Laura Wilhelm-Bruzek, from the Paws for the Cause feral cat rescue in Chesterfield, stated that people can’t just go around shooting things they don’t understand.
In happier news, Veligurov and his little pet sparrow Abi seem to have an unbreakable bond.
Vadim Veligurov plans on bringing his little sparrow, Abi, back home with him after his summer break has ended. Now that is a happily ever after!
