Cat's house on the beach
Odesa's love for cats is not a secret - the city has numerous cat statues and the furry friends are more than comfortable roaming the city streets. However, the comfort certainly decreases during harsh Ukrainian winters. That's why the local activist Denys Fedenko launched @koto_punkt project aimed at keeping the animals warm in winter. Local volunteers installed a cat house in Luzanovka Park near the beach. The house has enough space for the cats to warm up in and a feeder that can be easily refilled.
