There's A New Cat In Town At Winston Churchill's Former Home

There’s a new resident at Sir Winston Churchill’s home at Chartwell in Kent, and he has four legs, orange fur and meows.

The British politician’s unusual request to always have an orange-colored cat at his estate has been met with the adoption of a rescue cat named Jock VI, who was a stray taken into the care of an animal welfare group before he was adopted. The cat’s desired characteristics were very specific, including white paws and white chest fur. The late Prime Minister’s obsession with cats of this kind began when his secretary, Jack Colville, gifted him a similar kitten for his 88th birthday.

Churchill lived in the Kent home from 1924 until his death in 1965, and the estate was his pride and joy, with rooms and property virtually untouched since his passing. The estate currently belongs to the National Trust and is open to the public for visitation.  A stop over at the lavish home could mean catching a glimpse of kitty Jock VI along with pictures, books and personal momentos belonging to Churchill during his life.

As animal lovers, we adore the fact that Churchill had such a fondness for cats, and it is even better that the tradition of having an animal at the estate is being kept alive by rescue and adoption.
