Murchik’s sad story is that the cat who survived the Russian bombing died shortly before returning to his Ukrainian family.

It was one of the symbols of resistance in the Russian bombed Ukrainian city of Borodianka. Some journalists noticed him and he was dragged alive from under the rubble. With his proud gaze, gleaming spit, and random fur, he looked directly into the lens of the photographer who made him famous.


The protagonist of this story is a cat about which little or nothing is known. At first no one knew his name or whether his owners survived.


Yet the cat survived, and her story seemed to have a doubly happy ending: the cat was adopted by the Interior Ministry, which opened the door to her home, where she found food, care, and a hug.


And it would have been better: thanks to the announcements made by Interior Ministry adviser Anton Geraschenko, the owner spat and it was discovered that his name was Morchik. But her nine lives weren’t enough to embrace her “human mother”: she died shortly before she was seen, and veterinarians were unable to save her.
