Winston Churchill’s Legacy to Cats — 21 Comments

  1. wow thats wonderful, he was a cat lover 🙂 great that the ginger and whites have a special forever home. Love this story. So nice to have a feel good story. Ginger cats are truly the best esp if they Tabbies as well.:) hope everyone is well.

  2. Lovely story Ruth. I had no idea. It is really nice, wonderful actually, that this famous house is the home of a ginger tabby cat and will be “in perpetuity”.

    Churchill is probably or possibly the most admired person in the world and in recent history and he loved cats! What about that? It is another confirmation that cats are great.

  3. Thanks for the comments 🙂
    Just a change writing a news story instead of my own imagination taking flight and crying out for a poster to go with it lol
    It was very easy to do, no challenge at all 🙁
    but I was a bit worried that people might be getting fed up of my posters.

  4. Even though I was a kid, I remember Winston Churchill spoken of fondly here in America. His mother was American, and he was made an honorary American citizen at some point.
    I never knew what a cat lover he was. Thanks, Ruth AKA. I’m happy to know that.
    He reminds me a little of Earnest Hemingway and his cat Snowball, a polydactyl. His home and museum are in Key West Florida, and the property has around 50 polydactyls there, some of which are descendents of Snowball.
    There we have it, real men who love cats and weren’t afraid to show it!

  5. This is lovely, I knew that Sir Winston Churchill, Winnie, as he was also known, was a great cat lover but not this great detail about the first Jock and his successors, how kind of the family to want to keep a cat similar to the first Jock at the family home for always and as Ruth said wonderful that several cats have been rescued and lived as aristocracy. The present Jock is a handsome chap I hope he has a long and happy reign at Chartwell. Thanks for this Ruth I enjoyed it.
