Hangover-Curing Cat On Sale For £185,000

If you've got a pet, you're probably well aware that seeing their cute, fluffy little face eases your hangover slightly.

But one Russian guy is so convinced that his wife's British Shorthair pet cat has actual hangover-curing properties, he's put it up for sale for £185,000 ($225k) - a small price to pay if you felt anything like I did on Sunday.

Mikhail Shipunov, who lives in Rostov-on-Don in the Rostov Oblast of southern Russia, says it also protects against the 'evil eye'.

He's listed the British breed on avito.com, a Russian classified ads website, saying the 'mystical cat' can work miracles.

In the ad, Shipunov claims the two-and-a-half-year-old cat is friends with Domovoy, the god of the household in the Slavic pagan religious tradition - stay with me here.

It is claimed that the cat 'protects the house from the evil eye and troubles' and 'cures a hangover' before adding: "Her big eyes are bewitching."

The man adds that in bad weather, the cat prefers sweets, as well as 'paranormal Whiskas with mystical wet food'.

It's starting to sound like a wind up now, isn't it.

The ad goes on to describe the cat saying: "An active, funny cat. What else could you wish for?"

Shipunov told local media that there are two cats who currently live in his house but do not get along well, which prompted him to part with one of them. Why you'd pick the mystical hangover-curing miracle cat, I'm not sure. Maybe the other one is even better?

He also added that his wife who owns the cat is not happy about her pet leaving - understandably - so it seems she's put a hefty price on the value the gorgeous cat brings to her life, which is a sweet 15 million RUB (£185,000).

Even that amount of money would not get me to part with my cat... I don't think so anyway.

Shipunov said that several people had already called him, but none have agreed to the price, weirdly enough.

However, maybe recognising that even for a gifted miracle cat £185,000 is potentially a bit steep, he has said the price is negotiable.
