Finland's ex-President receives kitten from Russian PM

Former Finnish President Tarja Halonen, will soon see the kitten that was gifted to her from the Russian Prime Minister. Dmitry Medvedev promised to give Halonen a kitten during his visit to Helsinki in mid-November last year.

The ex-president will receive the kitten from the Russian ambassador to Finland. The cat of Neva Masquerade breed is now four months old.

Tarja Halonen is a long-time fan of felines. In July 2012, she lost one of her pets: the animal named Miska died of cancer. Now the former head of state has one cat left - 17-year-old Rontti.

Noteworthy, the world's most famous Neva Masquerade cat - Dorofei - has been Medvedev's pet for eight years. The wife of the prime minister took a kitten at a suburban animal shelter in 2001. However, the pet died in three years, and the family began to look for a new one. This is how Dorofei appeared in the house. The pet cost a thousand dollars.
