HERE ARE A FEW FAMOUS CAT LOVERS!
Pope Benedict XVI (born Joseph Alois Ratzinger, 1927- ) Head of the Roman Catholic Church and sovereign of Vatican City State
His cat Chico, a black-and-white domestic short hair, continues to live at the pope’s home in Tübingen, Germany (pets are not allowed in the Vatican). Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop of Los Angeles, who was in Rome for the pope’s inauguration, says “The street talk that the pope loves cats is incorrect. The pope adores cats.”
Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) British politician (notably, UK prime minister during World War II)
Churchill’s marmalade cat Jock slept with his master, shared his dining table, and attended numerous war-time Cabinet meetings. If Jock was late for meals, Churchill would send servants to find him, waiting to eat til the cat was present. Jock was said to have been with his master when he died. Churchill also had a cat, Nelson, named after the famous British admiral.
John Lennon (1940-1980) Singer
The famous Beatle loved cats; as a boy he reportedly cycled to the fishmonger’s to buy hake for his cat. He named his first cat Mimi after his cat-loving aunt. He and his first wife Cynthia had up to ten cats.
George Burns (1896-1996) American comedian, actor, and producer
George Burns called his cat “Willie,” reportedly because “when you tell the cat what to do, there’s always a question of will he or won’t he.”
