Dmitry Medvedev’s beloved cat Dorofey mysteriously disappeared. The news has stirred media hype and hit the Twitter world trends. The discussion has become so hot that the President himself has had to step in.

­Local Moscow newspaper Sobesednik broke 'the news' on Wednesday saying police are searching every bush around the presidential residence. Dorofey’s photos have been glued on lamp posts all over the area. Volunteers are on high alert and ready to join the search on April 1.

The rumor has been eagerly followed by Twitter subscribers and sparked online cries of laughter. Some allege the cat escaped because “enough is enough” and is now “heading for Holland”. Others were quick to report that hundreds of special service troops from Chechnya and thousands of investigators from Tatarstan have been sent to search for Dorofey, as the cat grabbed an "expensive watch".

A Facebook account created under Cat Dorofey’s name insists that the cat has no intention to return, even despite the increased pressure, “I am gone. Do not look for me.”  

Local police say “No cats have disappeared” – but who knows, maybe they just are in denial, after losing track of the furry dodger?

No one can doubt the cat’s owner though. Media buzz reached Dmitry Medvedev who wrote on his Twitter that Dorofey is safely at home: “From sources close to Dorofey it became known that he never disappeared. Thanks for concern everybody!”
