Man waits by the lake every day for his sweet otter friend to swim out and greet him

April 2nd, 2021

What do you do when you’re feeling lonely? You might snuggle with your pet, or talk to a friend. Those who live alone can find themselves looking for some kind of companionship. Especially if they live in rural areas, where they aren’t very close to other people.

One man accidentally stumbled on a relationship with an interesting creature after living alone in the woods for quite some time.

Seppo Laamanen, a 65-year-old resident of what was once Punkaharju, Finland. The municipality has now been consolidated into the nearby town of Savonlinna.

With less than 4,000 people in the town, Seppo doesn’t see people often. He mostly keeps to himself, living his life out in the woods.

One winter day, he went outside and found an otter sitting on his porch. This otter looked hungry and cold and begged for food.

The man decided to give the small otter a meal of fish and worms to help with his malnourishment. It was love at first bite. Ever since that meal, the otter comes to visit on a regular basis.

The two have developed a close relationship and sometimes wander around the woods together.

Every day, Seppo waits on his porch for the otter to arrive.

He won’t go back inside until the otter appears. As the two started spending time together, the man started feeling less lonely and had something to look forward to each day.

They have the sweetest bond!

Sometimes, the water-dwelling mammal stays for his meal. Other days, he eats and runs back to the frigid waters. The otter never disappoints Seppo and always shows up on his porch.

One day, Seppo decided he would name his otter friend. He started calling him Iivari, which is Finnish for “bow warrior”.

They have become attached to each other in a beautiful and inspiring way.

Word started to spread about Seppo and Iivari’s unusual connection. They started to receive visitors who wanted to see how the two interacted. At first, these visitors came from the nearby town.

While Iivari feels close to Seppo, he feels shy around other people and burrows into the snow to hide from them. He won’t come out unless Seppo calls for him. Amazingly, Iivari responds well to any commands given.
