MOSCOW, March 28 (RIA Novosti)
President Dmitry Medvedev’s cat Dorofey briefly entered Twitter’s top trends on Wednesday after tabloid rumors of his disappearance.
The Sobesednik weekly reported earlier in the day that Dorofey was being searched for by police in the Odintsovo district.
However, police rubbished rumors that the cat had run away from Medvedev’s near-Moscow residence and the president himself confirmed that the presidential tomcat was safe.
"About the cat. A source close to Dorofey says he has not got lost anywhere. Thank you all for your concern!" Medvedev tweeted.
A Twitter account in the cat’s name (@KotDorofey) was created on Wednesday and already has some 400 followers.
