Mews and Nips: Leo the Cat Joins The Dean of Canterbury Cathedral for Morning Prayers

leo-morning-prayer

The Dean of Canterbury Cathedral in the UK has been offering daily morning prayers from the cathedral’s beautiful gardens, where he is often joined by Leo the Cathedral cat. Leo even went viral recently when he disappeared in the dean’s robes during one of the morning sessions. Watch the video of the “incident” below. Regardless of your religious or spiritual orientation, doesn’t just looking at this beautiful photo of the lovely spot the dean picked for his daily prayers soothe your soul? What a lovely, serene spot, enhanced by Leo’s presence!

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, I encouraged you to take a 24 hour news break, on Monday, I offered reflections on Memorial Day, on Tuesday, we featured an adorable cat light string, on Wednesday, we remembered the time when Ruby got in trouble with a dinner guest, on Thursday, we featured heart whisker jewelry from Volana Kote, and on Friday, we shared pre-order information for P.S. I Love You More Than Tuna.

And as promised, here’s the video of Leo “disrupting” morning prayers. I love how the dean doesn’t miss a beat.

Have a great weekend!

    So cute! There used to be a dog who lived with the Episcopal monks at the property at the Bishop’s ranch. He would come in at the start of services and lay down in the aisle. He had figured out when the service would be over, and left before all the people did. And we had the Blessing of the Animals at St. Francis church, where you could bring any pets. We brought our cat (in a carrier) and it was held outdoors.

    I already saw this peaceful serene photo, but thanks Ingrid for bringing to all your readers and viewers again. I just think the place is heavenly, and when Leo just slowly disappears under the Dean’s robe it’s so awesome. Leo must feel very safe under the Dean’s robe and Leo must be very close to the Dean. I just love the photo.
