9780007182800: Cathedral Cats

This appealing little book forms a group portrait of some of the most privileged cats in Britain. Their homes could not be more ancient or splendid. They are admired by thousands of tourists. They have the run of roofs and vaults, nooks and crannies, cloisters and choirs. Photographer Richard Surman has traveled to dozens of Britain’s great churches and cathedrals to record these ecclesiastical felines, and each photo is accompanied by a pen portrait of the cat and its particular eccentricities. There is Biggles, for example, feline tyrant of Westminster Abbey, who was issued an official warning by the police after mauling a constable’s trousers! Such is the stuff of this irresistible book.

From the Publisher:

This book, and a companion volume "The Times Book of Church Cats" (ISBN: 0006281230), form a group portrait of some of the most privileged cats in Britain. Their homes could not be more ancient or more splendid. They are admired by thousands of tourists. There is hardly a door or a window that is closed to them. They have the run of roofs and vaults, nooks and crannies, cloisters and choirs. Photographer Richard Surman has traveled to dozens of Britain's great churches and cathedrals to record these ecclesiastical felines, and each photo is accompanied by a pen portrait of the cat and its particular eccentricities. There is Biggles, for example, feline tyrant of Westminster Abbey, who was issued an official warning by the police after mauling a constable's trousers! Such is the stuff of these two irresistible books.

From the Back Cover:

No cat lover will be able to resist Cathedral Cats. Photographer Richard Surman has visited more than twenty cathedrals throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and has identified a cat that is intimately associated with each of them. He has produced two gorgeous colour pictures of each cat in its typical habitat. These are accompanied by a pen portrait documenting the cat's life in the cathedral and its particular foibles and eccentricities. The book is full of humour and insight into the twilight world of the cat. Biggles, feline tyrant of Westminster Abbey, was born in a mining village and now hunts rats and other cats in the ancient cloisters. His daily promenade takes him right down the centre aisle of the Abbey, and he has been seen both asleep and sharpening his claws on the high altar. He hides in a dense Virginia creeper and surprises passers by, notably dogs and Japanese tourists. He was issued with an official warning by the Westminster police after he mauled a constable's trousers. Such is the stuff of Cathedral Cats.
