Bari Alibasov, a Soviet and Russian musician, composer and music producer, always hated animals, and in particular cats. However, in each person's life, a turning point comes sooner or later.
Since childhood, Bari Karimovich did not like animals. “I grew up in the countryside, so I was always surrounded by cows, geese, sheep, chickens. All of them were just walking meat. I'm strange, even a little unhealthy, "- says the artist. But his views on pets changed dramatically when Arni appeared in the life of Alibasov - a bald cat. His actor literally forcibly took from one of the soloists of the group "Na-Na", who left the cat to live with his producer for the duration of the tour. But, unfortunately, this story ended in tragedy: Arnie died in a fire in the apartment of the artist. “I have never met such delicate and clever people as this cat was among the people,” Alibasov recalls.The first cat Arnie
The artist very hard experienced the loss. In order to console and support him, his acquaintances brought various cats to the star. "Even Maine Coon was huge, like a tiger, offered," - says the artist. As a result, a second Sphynx cat named Barney, whom Bari Karimovich affectionately calls Chucha, appeared in Alibasov’s house.

Outwardly, Chucha is very similar to Arnie, it was thanks to this that he got his “official” name Barney. But the characters, according to the famous producer, cats are different. Alibasov is inseparable from his pet and argues that he is better than any person he has met in his life. “When I leave, I constantly think about him, it even happens that I give up all my affairs and, regardless of the circumstances, I hurry home to Chucha,” the actor says.
The musician treats the cat as a person and says that he does not even know the correct name of the pet's breed. The only thing that interests Bari Karimovich is the personality of his four-legged friend: artistic, philosophical, sparking, she wants to know everything around. It was thanks to his curiosity that Chucha found a favorite toy for himself - a printer. Alibasov claims that a five-year-old cat is able to open and close the device by itself, press buttons and print pre-prepared images.
Chuchu's typical feline toys are not interested, but, like many members of his breed, he loves people very much and tries to climb on his hands and get the maximum dose of warmth and affection from each new acquaintance. Most likely, this is caused by natural curiosity, and is complemented by the fact that sphinxes are a heat-loving breed. Chucha also finds a common language with other animals - his neighbour’s dog is his best friend. Sometimes Bari Karimovich and Chuchey come to visit the neighbors, where the cat plays with his friend.
Bari Karimovich does not represent life without his cat and claims that he would like to die before him. Chucha for him - the best and probably the only true friend. "If I am not home for half a day, the cat clings to me, purrs and does not let go. With him, I feel loved and alive," says Alibasov.
One casual acquaintance can turn a person’s view of pets into one’s head. If you still haven't gotten your four-legged friend, then think about it. Perhaps, in your life there will be a meeting with a pet, which will become the most expensive living creature in the world.
