In October 2, 2013 in Murmansk was opened a monument to Cat Semyon, who for more than 6 years was travelling home from Moscow to Murmansk to its owners.

"In 1987, Sinishin family was returning back home from vacation. Their cat Semyon, luxurious representative of Siamese breed accompanied them. But, alas, during a stop in Moscow, Sinishins lost their pet. They had no longer hope to see again the pet, as 6 years later pretty shabby Semyon appeared on the doorstep of their apartment. Just think, to get back home, the cat overcame more than two thousand miles. "

Purrer`s heroic deed could not remain unnoticed, and now on the site of the Semenovskoe Lake his bronze figure catches the eye of thousands people of Murmansk.

The memory of his odyssey is a symbol of devotion of pets to their owners.
