Charming tale of long history of "cat guards" at The Hermitage

http://english.ruvr.ru/radio_broadcast/2249159/75927890.html

Started by Peter I in 1784, with the building of the Winter Palace. The cats have worked the rodent patrol every since, with a few breaks.

They did not survive the Siege of Leningrad, but sacrficed their lives to others might live.... Interesting site.
