The Cat Story
Fedor was a really big (13 kg) white angora cat, who was always with me for 14 years. He appeared on most of my illustrations, and took part in everything i did. He is on the logo of my Russian shop Belolapik (which also means “White Paw” in Russian) and my favorite Muse forever. He was by me when I was working, when I was sick, and when I was crying. I loved him so very much. Fedor died on june 7, 2013. When I published posts about his death, thousands of readers were crying after him, – after a cat they never met live! They felt like knowing him for ages, because I was blogging about him almost every day for 14 years, with so much love.
