Bronze statue of cat Panteleimon is on a rock in front of Golden Gate Park, in the historical center of Kiev. The author of the monument – Bogdan Mazur. In the restaurant opposite the Golden Gate lived a live prototype – gray Persian cat Pantyusha. Cat loved the restaurant staff as well as his guests – a cat never allowed himself to sleep, while not personally convinced that all guests felt comfortable.
Unfortunately, he died tragically in a fire in a restaurant – suffocated in the smoke. And after a while friends gave the restaurant a bronze statue of a cat. In the original version on a pedestal next to the cat was a bird. However, after vandals cut it down several times, the authorities decided to leave the cat in splendid isolation. Meanwhile, Pantyusha enjoys great success with visitors to the city. There’s no end to wanting to be photographed, that’s why the cat ears and tail are already shining with gold polished brass. Thus, the pet brings joy to people even after death. If you touch the cat on the ear and tail, you can make a wish, which will come true.
