Cat calendar featuring Russian orthodox priests goes viral

Aimed at “promoting modern Orthodox culture”, the calendar starts with archpriest Oleg Batov and his cat Apelsin. Mr February – archpriest Pyotr Dynnikov, who also runs an animal shelter – is photographed with his two pets Angola and Vasik.

Nah but close.  It's the guy who did the voice for Gerry Adams' statements when he was banned from being broadcast back in the 80's early 90's.  When John Major eventually allowed Adams to be played on air Adams said "he was sorry to see him go as he sounds more like Gerry Adams than I do".   :lol:

I agree - looks creepy though the cats are OK.  :papa:
