Semyon, the cat, has been living at 135 Fire and Rescue Unit in the Tyumen region for two years. During this time, the animal has become a member of the team and an assistant to the firefighters. Ruptly got acquainted with the fluffy talisman by visiting the village of Borovsky on January 14.

According to Deputy Head of the 135 Fire and Rescue Unit Nikolai Savchenkov, Semyon creates a unique atmosphere during the guard posting standing by standing in a particular place during the military formation.

"All our squares are signed, so it comes and sits down here as a duty cadet. It seems like a serious event, and you immediately want to smile. Somewhere it even warms my heart," Savchenkov shared.

Head guard of the 135 Fire and Rescue Unit Vitaly Domrachev, explained that Semyon came here as a kitten when one of the employees brought him. The firefighters immediately fell in love with the cat from the first day.

Domrachev also said that the cat's favourite sleeping place is in the dispatcher's office of the first guard Olga Zinovieva. She equipped Semyon with a couch and sewed a whole wardrobe for it.

"At first, the idea was just to sew him a regular everyday uniform like ours. Everything is as it should be with chevrons, with its name on it. Then she sewed a t-shirt, then she sewed an orange sweater. Now a new blue t-shirt was sewed, it also says MES's. The most amazing thing is that she sewed for him the most real firefighter combat clothes," explained Domrachev.

Semyon, the cat, also provides firefighters with forecasts for the future. Unit employees can predict on its behaviour how the shift will go.

For example, if the animal sleeps peacefully on the windowsill in the control room, then the day will pass quietly, and if it restlessly runs, then something is about to happen.

The team of the 135 Fire and Rescue Unit considers Semyon an integral member of the fire fraternity because the tailed employee attends all morning formations and escorts guards to alarm trips and joyfully greets comrades upon returning to the unit.
