I love kittens, too. I wish we could see a picture of Bella!
Here are more details:
OF all Pope Benedict's loyal followers in Australia, little Bella has every right to feel like the cat that got the cream.
The 11-month-old grey tabby kitten has been brought in to make the pontiff feel at home during his three-day stay at Kenthurst in NSW.
It will ease any bout of homesickness the pontiff would have felt being away from his most beloved of pets.
The Pope’s love of stray cats is legendary in the Vatican, and his house in Germany is filled with cats and guarded by a cat statue.
Catherine Lennon said the Opus Dei followers at the Kenthurst Study Centre brought Bella into the retreat to keep the Pope company while he played the piano.
A talented musician and Mozart fan, the Pope will have access to a baby grand piano in a room decorated with paintings of Australian landscapes.
With no TV or extravagances, he will have a time to get to know his new friend.
It’s very endearing to imagine the Holy Father enjoying the company of a kitten, isn’t it? I see from your name that you are a mom, too. Have you seen the book Joseph & Chico yet? Our family really enjoyed reading it!
