In the settlement of Prigorodny in western Siberia, there’s a magical place where stunning cats live on a farm their owner refers to as “Koshlandia,” or the land of cats. The name couldn’t be more fitting, as you’ll soon see.
Russian farmer Alla Lebedeva and her husband, Sergey, have spent the last ten years raising cats on their farm, where the creatures roam free. Lebedeva has so many kitties living on her property, in fact, that she jokingly says she has “a million, maybe more.” The Siberian cats she cares for are so beautiful that she can’t help but document them in countless photos and videos against a snowy backdrop.
To call them majestic would be a severe understatement.
But Lebedeva says they serve a greater purpose than just being furry models.
“Our cats protect the chickens and rabbits from rats and mice,” she told The Siberian Times.
