Near the main building of St. Petersburg State University in late 2002, established the first full-fledged monument to a cat in Russia. This modest, minimalistic sculpture is a token of gratitude to those cats who have brought priceless benefits in the course of laboratory research. The Department of Physiology and Anatomy of St. Petersburg, as well as participants of the St. Petersburg club "Felis" offered to create a monument. Realized the idea of Honored Artist of the Russian Federation and sculptor - A. G. Dem. The architecture was developed by NN Sokolov and SL Mikhailov. This is a special monument, which is not enveloped in beautiful legends, which do not stroke for luck. It is something quite different, causing very mixed feelings. To visit a meter granite cat, settled on a high base, is definitely worth it for those who are attracted by "cat Petersburg", but not only its nice and cozy part.
