Alexander Borodin

1813-1887

The Russian composer Alexander Borodin and his wife were great cat-lovers, and lived surrounded by them. The cats were allowed to do as they pleased, which included walking on the dinner-table during meals. Rimsky-Korsakoff during dinner, once complained of Mrs. Borodin that she was taking the cats side when he tried to shoo it off his plate. 

One of their many cats (said to number twenty) was called Rybolov, which means Fisherman. The cat was given this name because he often caught fish through holes in the ice.
