Domestic Animals

Domestic animals play an important role in Russia, especially in rural areas and certain provinces.

Cats are popular house pets both in urban and rural areas because they are good at chasing away common pests such as rats and cockroaches. Dogs are present in almost every household, protecting their masters' home from trespassers and keeping them company.

Domestic animals are also a valuable source of food. Poultry like chicken and ducks are raised for their meat and eggs.
