I was wondering who that Dorafei was. A quick search revealed that it was none other than Russian president Dmitry Medvedev’s cat… Since when president’s cats are folklore creatures?

Дорофей from Ancient Greek Δωροθέος (Dōrotheos), “‘God’s gift’”).

  1. Cats, specifically Siberians and Russian Blues, feature heavily in Russian folklore, not specifically Dorofey. -_-;;
