13 Gorgeous Pictures Of Russians Posing With Their Cats

And check out their names.

Earlier this month, Russian cat enthusiasts filled the floor of a gymnasium in Siberia for the semi-annual Novosibirsk Cat Expo. Photographer Grant Slater picked his favorite cats and asked their owners to pose with them. These "cat Olympics" were 2,700 miles from Sochi in the middle of Siberia where it's 60 degrees colder.

Grant Slater is in Russia on a Social Expertise Exchange fellowship provided by the Eurasia Foundation. He will be wandering Siberia for the next two months. You can follow his travels on Instagram.
