Affectionate cats | Narendra Modi | Lundy life | Country diary | Bookshop sign
The supposed affection of cats (Yes, your cat really does love you…, G2, 25 September) is strongly suggested by the story of Doorkins Magnificat, the Southwark cathedral cat. The cathedral staff tell how, on the night before a previous dean’s funeral, Doorkins forsook her usual sleeping place and slept instead under the coffin. A Magnificat indeed.
