Moscow's Feline Friends on National Cat Day

Russia celebrates all things feline on March 1 as part of World Cat Day. Founded in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and other animal rights groups, the holiday is also marked in other countries on Aug. 8.

In honor of the special occasion, The Moscow Times has gathered the best photos of Moscow's four-legged friends out and about in the Russian capital.
