New Russian President a Cat Owner

Well, we can't always be serious here. New Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is the owner of a Siberian Colorpoint cat.

A Russian tomcat will move into the Kremlin when his owner Dmitry Medvedev is sworn in as president in May, replacing the outgoing leader's Labrador, Connie.

Dorotheus, a blue-eyed Siberian colorpoint, is an independent-minded and quiet creature. However, he once had a serious fight with a cat that belonged to Mikhail Gorbachev, the Soviet leader who at one time lived next door to the Medvedevs, Moskovsky Komsomolets said.

Dorotheus, now four years old, was defeated and had to be treated with antibiotics for over a month. Worse still, he had to be castrated to stop him prowling and looking for more fights, the paper said.

Here is a link to what the breed looks like.

Looks very similar to Jenny, our Norwegian Forest Cat.
