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.
