According to the author of the monument Bashmakov, this is not just a collective image of Kazan cat. This is the legendary mouser Alabrys, first of the cats sent from Kazan to catch mice in the Hermitage, St. Petersburg. Noteworthy, the Empress Catherine II, during her visit to Kazan, noted that the city is free of mice. So, she ordered to move 30 best cats to St. Petersburg. Thus, the cats from Kazan found themselves in the royal apartments, where all the rodents quickly disappeared. And now their descendants live in the Hermitage.

Very cool, I never knew that.

Although the story does seem a tad apocryphal :P

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
