Why This Page? Simple, cats are cute. Also, cats are peaceful. Well sort of, aside from a tendency to hunt, kill, and eat mice, they have never built a nuclear weapon or invaded anything, except our hearts. These are our current cats. Many more have passed over the rainbow bridge.
Boots, a wandering stray, spent his first few months at the Catholic Worker running from all who approached. One day he decided to join Benny during his morning exercises (he must have a fondness for yoga) and has since become our most affectionate cat. His favorite pastime is rubbing his head on people while being petted.
This amazing fake cat actually looks real, even up close, and actually appears to be breathing as the stomach moves up and down. This cat is a permanent fixture in our memorial garden at our hospitality kitchen.
