A wonderful collection of moggy tales from their adopted religious homes across the country. Beautifully photographed and wittily written, it is a tribute to these independent spirits who can, and do, take over the lives of those they adopt?? Meet Sandy, Antigone and Pooh who wreak vocal havoc at St Michael?s Church in Alnwick with their barbershop singing; Pushkin the ancient incumbent at St Peter?s and St Paul?s in Pickering; Little Arthur and his late brother, Quinquagesima who liked to hide in the bowels of the organ in Somerset; Spats and Sponge who live an idyllic life with the Brothers at Hilfield Friary, near Dorchester and many more. Written from the cat?s point of view, it is an hilarious account of how they treat their owners and homes, author Richard Surman perfectly capturing the feline turn of phrase?.. The third in a series of photographic cat-alogues, the previous being ?Cathedral Cats? and ?Castle Cats?, this is a must for every cat-lover who will purr with satisfaction at the sight of their favourite animals being illuminated in such illustrious and godly settings.About the Author:
