Many people consider cats as part of their family and the Southwark Cathedral in London is no different. Back in 2008, a stray cat named Doorkins Magnificat lived in the cathedral and became part of the church.

Unfortunately, Doorkins finally died on September 30, 2020 so the Very Reverend Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark, wrote an obituary. “From those first tentative steps into the building she made the church her own,” he wrote. “She preferred the holy spaces and every so often she would move to another place which became her favorite spot.”
