Arshavin in childhood pet trauma

Andrei Arshavin may be struggling for form on the pitch at the moment (though he has shown signs of getting back to his best recently) but his website is one of the funniest I've ever read. If you have not done so already, you should check it out.

Andrei regularly answers questions from fans on just about everything from how he takes his tea to human karma and transmigration of souls (and just about everything in between). His answers are often hilarious (and sometimes so are the questions).

In his latest QA session he was asked whether he had any pets. He said:
'At the present moment I don't have any. When I was a kid, we had two kittens. I cannot now remember their gender. And we also had a hamster. However, they all disappeared under unclear circumstances. When I was a teenager we had a Pekingese dog - Chuck. It still lives with my mother, rather old now. In family life, Julia and I still do without pets. Although Yana and Artem sometimes ask us to think about it. But my children do not strongly insist on it - bring it up once in a while and forget about it in a couple of minutes'.
One wonders what 'disappeared under unclear circumstances' means. It probably means that they died and his parents didn't want to tell him, but he is Russian so they could have been abducted by the KGB or defected to the West to appear in car insurance commercials.
