Queen Elizabeth II bans cats from Sandringham estate

It is said that Queen Elizabeth II is allergic to cats. It is also said that her staff at the Sandringham estate are killing accidentally or deliberately wandering outside domestic cats because they threaten young pheasants. Pheasants are shot on the estate for amusement.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment written by visitors. It is a way visitors can contribute to animal welfare without much effort and no financial cost. Please comment. It helps this website too which at heart is about cat welfare.

The Queen loves dogs and horses but apparently dislikes cats but there is no hard evidence for it. New tenants of the estate cannot have cats. There is a strict no cats policy. Apparently existing tenants can keep their cats.

The estate is 20,000 acres and there are 11 villages on it. The keeping of dogs is assessed on a house-by-house basis. The Queen is more favourably disposed towards dogs and has kept corgis for many years. Her love of horses can be seen in her love of horse racing. At heart she is a massive toff; highly upper crust.

Disappearance of cats

There are allegations that a number of cats have disappeared on the estate. One lady, Geraldine Farrow, living in Flitcham, which backs onto the estate, has lost four cats since 2003. She says that about 12 cats in all from her street went missing over 2 years before 2015.

The residents feel something strange is happening. They hint at the possibility that staff on the estate are shooting the cats deliberately or accidentally. If they are shooting the cats it won’t be accidentally.

I certainly would not be surprised if gamekeepers are shooting the cats. It is the sort of thing I can envisage them doing to protect game birds.


Sandringham estate management wouldn’t say why the cat ban was in place. Local police said they had been approached about the loss of the cats. They said they could not investigate as the complainant could not produce any evidence. They were keen then!

The video is amusing and nothing to do with the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

  1. It is horrifying to know that the Queen of England may employ such cruel measures to dispose of cats, while at the same time being so enamored of dogs and horses. Shooting pheasants for amusement ranks right up there as another disparaging topic. 😱😠😭

    • The Queens is a toff and distanced from the real world. And she was raised in a hunting/shooting family like all upper class toffs. That background lends itself to poor attitudes to animal welfare in my opinion.

  2. The queen has always hated cats, her gamekeepers are the most likely cause of the poor disappearing cats. Some employees have lost their tied home as they refused to “get rid” of their beloved cat.

    Gamekeepers are the reason why the Scottish Wild Cat numbers are so low too.

    It is time we got rid of the royal parasites, the whole aristocracy and all those who defend or aspire to that lifestyle.

    • Get rid of the royal parasites! Nice one. I did not realise that you were such a republican (is that the right terminology).

      • Hehe! I loathe them, how can we tolerate/pay for such bloated parasites when so many live in the direst of poverty?

        Ooh, ‘republican’ not so sure about that, that’s Trumpy/Bush/Reagan country isn’t it?

        I think I am humanist mostly, with occasional socialist leanings & atheist with a sort of empathy with Quakers (apart from the god bit)

  3. Royalty in itself is nothing but a collection of a bunch of inbred over pedigreed worthless pets. I have no idea why you keep them around.

      • I’m not sure what a royalist is but the whole parade and fanaticism over their mating , breeding and reproduction habits are quite repulsive in 2018 where the fight for true equality among humankind is at the forefront of most civilized humans.
        Elected officials are public servants and need to be spanked back down to where they belong. I have long suggested folding tables and chairs in large metal buildings instead of mock palaces. A ‘royal’ being an open cat haters is no different than that gang of miscreants called the Western Governors Association that put feral cats on the list of invasive species thereby putting a target on ALL cats.
        Interesting as the first thing on my news feed today was a picture of kate middleton in a dress she had worn before,(that’s news) out and about after whelping again.
        Don’t get me wrong I detest our elected officials many who see themselves as royalty in both parties content to spend taxpayer money so they can have breakfast muffins that cost more per day than a poverty ridden truly disabled person or senior receive in a month to survive on.
        Packs of wankers, all of them.
