In June, the 12-year-old found the lost female baby bird near his grandmother's house in Minusinsk, where he was spending the summer, according to Reuters. The sparrow never tried to fly away. Instead, she stayed by her new friend's side.

Abi likes to prop herself on Veligurov's shoulder. She'll even eat out of his hand and peck him on the lips, the Metro reported.

And since the two are now inseparable, Veligurov plans to take Abi back to his hometown after summer break.

We think this is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
