Like every usual morning, the Anglican priest of Canterbury Cathedral was on air with his Morning Prayer, one of the cats in the church named Leo suddenly was walking inside the priest’s robe. That priceless moment took the world go wild with more than 70K upvotes on the official Twitter account and a bunch of funny comments were appeared on 2 social media platforms.
In the 7-second video, we can obviously see how calm and professional the Very Rev. Dr. Robert Willis, Dean of Canterbury was but that little black critter Leo had stolen the show. According to the Head of Marketing and Communications at Canterbury Cathedral, Nathan Crouch, “Leo is a cat of split personality”. Sometimes he wants to be aloof and distant from people around the church but he also wants to be smothered with a lot of attention.
“Like his mother, they love to socialise with the many pilgrims and visitors and takes his role as an ambassador very seriously or in calmer times he finds a cosy place in the house or sunny spot in the garden to sleep.”
Back to this historical moment of Canterbury Cathedral, Crouch revealed Leo was a true comedian in the precinct.
“Leo is one of four cats at the Deanery, the others being his mother Lilly and Uncles Monkey and Tiger.”
“Each of them is very different in character but Leo is undoubtedly the comedian, as could be seen from that clip – and many others besides! He has been enjoying making the daily broadcasts since March and whilst he would be happy to be in everyone, we have tried to include the others to prevent them from getting jealous.” – he continued.
As the Very Rev. Dr. Robert Willis was recording a routine Morning Prayer, Leo the cat simply “walked into him”
Recognizing the comedy in the situation, Canterbury Cathedral shared the funny moment on its official Twitter account
