Hey, He Likes Cats!

Famous Friday catblogger Kevin Drum (though he doesn't do Friday catblogging regularly anymore, depriving us of the latest doings of Jasmine and Inkblot) points us to an article that indicates that cats like new Pope, and he likes them. Can he be all bad?!

"I went with him once [to the Campasanto Teutonico]," said Konrad Baumgartner, the head of the theology department at Regensburg University. "Afterwards, he went into the old cemetery behind the church.

"It was full of cats, and when he went out, they all ran to him. They knew him and loved him. He stood there, petting some and talking to them, for quite a long time. He visited the cats whenever he visited the church. His love for cats is quite famous."

.... "When we were on vacation, a cat, a little kitten, would come by, and he'd be giddy, almost giggling with joy," [his brother's housekeeper] said. "Cats love him; they always go to him straight away. And he loves them back."

Viva il papa!
