Faggot And Dyke

Cats In Church

“Most convents have their cats. When one well-known community came through the cloisters for Vespers their cat often led them to the chapel, his black and white fur matching the Sisters’ habits.

“Visitors to Walsingham will remember the twin cats Faggot and Dyke. Dyke was somewhat irregular in his attendance at church, but Faggot spent much of his time there, often sitting on his master’s lap during a service and being carried round in a procession.”

From the ‘for Young Readers’ section of the Church Times. Thanks to Private Eye for at long last reprinting something worth us pinching.
