There is clear that it is a habit - especially for the girls - to touch the cat's tail and make a wish. But it was not clear whether the same works for boys, too - and which part of the body to touch..

While visting the Kiev Golden Gate be sure to find this statue in the little park surrounding the gate. The lionlike cat who resided in the neighbourhood must have made a great impression on the locals.

Nothing extraordinary but do stop by if you are in the area. If you like cats, you will be happy to add a picture with the bronze Pantelemon to your album. Meow!

The monument itself is interesting if you pass by, but what is really interesting, is the story behind and the fact that, for a change, the initiative and funds didn't come from the state but from the very people who knew and cherished the cat....More

This is OK but nothing special. It's located next to the Golden Gate site so it's convenient to check out if you're there. I never saw the one on the side of a tree though. It must have been removed.
