Pets may be kept with various species, from common creatures like dogs and cats to exotic ones like snakes and parrots.
On the rarest of occasions, you may see creatures like Kira, the wolf. She was abandoned by her mother at three days old, and she would have died without Alida’s help.
Alida took her in, trained her, and fostered her like a dog so that she might have a second chance at existence.
Kira was difficult to domesticate because she was a wild creature at heart, unlike dogs, who haven’t had centuries of domestication in their DNA.
Alida had to work extra hard because she was more hesitant about new experiences. Kira required a lot of socialization, and she met with children, adults, and even other animals.
After a long time, she was completely domesticated and would not hurt a single fly.
“Kira’s mother lived with a family, but they were unable to care for her and she ended up in a nursery. She has lost all faith in people. Kira was born in the same facility as well.”
“Kira will not survive long if she is set free in the wild. Since no one taught her to hunt, she has a high chance of dying. Kira’s mother ab.a.do.ned her and her siblings when they were three days old, leaving them to be fed by hand. As soon as Kira improved, I took her away, as well as Kira got stronger and also first fed her with milk.”
“I took her away from the nursery when she was 28 days old. She’s quite intelligent, but she’s also obstinate. When making decisions, she considers herself rather than me. I started the process of socialization right away. She had the opportunity to meet a lot of dogs, people, and children.”
“We went to see different things so that she could learn about new scents and sounds. Wolves have an inborn neophobia or fear of change. This is a time-consuming and laborious procedure, but it is important for Kira to live with me in the city and feel at ease. ”
Alida took Kira from the nursery when she was only 28 days old and continued to care, feed, and educate her to make her domesticated.
“Kira has a calm and mild mind that isn’t affected by other dogs’ aggressiveness or fights herself. She is very cautious when it comes to children, and if one is afraid of her, she will not approach him.”
Alida ensured that she would not be afraid of the modern world; they went on many expeditions together.
“People usually react with interest on the street, ask to be photographed, inquire whether it’s safe to live with a wolf, and especially when there’s a kid at home (I have a 7-year-old son named Bogdan.).”
Kira is a fully domesticated delighted dog who lives with a 7-year-old boy she adores. ALIDA is frequently asked by passers-by what it’s like to live with a wolf.
“In reality, people react very typically since Kira is a kind person who does not instill fear in others. However, on the internet, people are both furious and stupid; they write various things.
There were a lot of complaints that I was acting ridiculously stupid because I kept a predatory animal at home after a series of stories about us.
