Saint Mr. Waffles

I'm thinking if Benedict XVI was sitting on the papal throne a few centuries ago we'd have at least one cat with sainthood today.

The New York Times - Cat Lovers Appreciate Soul Mate in Vatican

"Benedict’s kindness toward the strays of Rome is already the stuff of Vatican legend. His house in Germany, its garden guarded by a cat statue, was filled with cats when Benedict lived there full time before he was posted to the Vatican in 1982.

And Benedict is, without a doubt, the first pope to have had an authorized biography of him written by a cat — Chico, a ginger tabby who lives across the road from Benedict’s old house in Germany. "
