This full color photographic gift book provides an engaging and amusing look into churches and their feline residents. Some cats join in church life with gusto—fascinated by the burials at the church of St. Peter and St. Paul, Pickering, church cat Pushkin has been known to get into very deep trouble. Meanwhile, Boni introduced himself to the new vicar of St. John's, Brecon by quite literally dropping in on a wedding—falling from a tree onto the arriving bride. Others seem less aware of their ecclesiastical surroundings, with numerous incidents of theft, antisocial behavior, and dog harassment throughout the country. Here too are the stories of Amy, the toothless agoraphobic from Selby who now shares a stable with the church donkey, and Korky, the tree-dwelling stray who has earned her own seat at the vicarage table. From sulky soccer fans to opera connoisseurs, this collection has captured an endearing array of church cats.
