Det har varit vaktombyte på Winston Churchills Chartwell. Katten Jock VI har tagit över Jock V.
Personal intygar att Jock ”takes afternoon naps, eats tuna and lounges on Persian rugs at the house.”
The Churchill Centre skriver:
A changing of the guard took place this past month as Jock VI succeeded Jock V as the official feline of Chartwell Manor, Winston Churchill’s country home near Westerham, Kent. Churchill dearly loved animals and had many pets during his long life including dogs, cats, birds, pigs horses and sundry other creatures. His last pet was an orange tabby cat given to him as a birthday present in 1962 by his long-time private secretary Sir John ”Jock” Colville and thus named for the giver. Churchill asked that there should always be such a cat residing at Chartwell. The National Trust, which took over the property after Churchill’s death in 1965, has always honoured the request. The purrfect arrangement continues to surprise and delight visitors.
