Russian Circus Legend to Open Cat Temple in Moscow


Famous circus artist Yury Kuklachev, the founder of the Moscow Cat Theater, announced on Monday plans to open an entertainment center in the Russian capital which he called a "cat temple," RIA Novosti reports.

Kuklachev, known for secret methods of training cats, said that the temple, which will be opened in September 2012 at the Cat Theater premises, will combine performances with music and light effects and visits to a special cat garden.

"Everything will make people feel joy and delight because these feelings inspire good deeds," Kuklachev said.

Kuklachev's Cat Theater, founded in 1990, has a company of over 120 cats of 36 breeds, and often makes world tours.
