He was the first to overcome the entire 19 km of the Crimean bridge from Taman to Kerch – even earlier than the president. Moreover, Putin was driving a car and even a KamAZ truck, and he stomped on his own. That is, in its four. Because he is a cat.
Bridge Cat, popularly – just a Bridge. Although this wonderful white-red one is not so simple at all: in Russia, everyone knows him, from adults to kids, and they call him the main cat of the country! The main construction site.
The first guards of the object picked up a little fluffy in Taman – it was back in 2015. So the cat, which was called, of course, the Bridge, has been living with the workers for almost three years.
The bridge builders tried very hard to pass the unique object by the appointed date – the end of 2018. And they tried so well that the grand opening of the automobile part of the bridge took place half a year earlier, on May 15.
Despite the huge employment, the builders did not ignore the cat. He immediately became a universal favorite! Of course, the mustachioed-striped meets the reciprocation of people: it graciously accepts from their hands the treats – Black Sea shrimp, table cutlets and other goodies. She doesn’t refuse to sleep on the red sofa in the bridge-building office.
His main concern is to oversee the construction of the bridge. Are piles driven in reliably? Are the mounts strong? Does the weld fit exactly? Real Kostmostadzor!
Nothing human is alien to the Bridge: he was rooting hard for our hockey players at the Olympics, and now, together with all progressive humanity, he is waiting for the start of the World Cup. And even going to make predictions.
The cat has long become a real celebrity. No, the song about the orange cat that goes over the bridge is not about him – it was written much earlier. But the Bridge has its own VKontakte group and even its Instagram, where there are already more than 40 thousand subscribers!
Among them there are stars. For example, the presenter of the program “Time” on the First Channel Ekaterina Andreeva. She constantly puts the cat “likes”.
Although communication with the celebrities of the Bridge is not surprising. His president himself knows!
But on May 15, 2018, the Bridge became a world star. They even wrote about him in the Washington Post! The Americans were surprised: how is it that a simple cat passed the new bridge even earlier than the head of state? But they, Americans, are simply not up to date: with us, cats always master new spaces before people come there. Because cats know how to protect their people from evil spirits and various other troubles. Such is our law in Russia.
