A cat that has been a regular attendant at the Norwich Cathedral has become a therapy cat to the parishioners that work there. The cat’s name is Budge, and his owners live very close to the Cathedral. It is suspected that he goes to the Cathedral for peace and quiet and to get away from his sister.

When he first showed up inside the church, they removed him, but he just kept coming back. Budge is also a regular visitor at a local pub and school, but he is most faithful to the church.

The Very Reverend Jane Hedges said that the cat had once been found sleeping in the baby Jesus nativity crib, and that they expect that he will do that again if allowed to.

Budge is very friendly and likes to follow the choristers around but often slips away once large crowds gather at the church. The dean added that Budge can also be found comforting people who visit the Cathedral distressed or overwhelmed. Because of his loving personality and comforting presence, Budge has been dubbed the Cathedral’s therapy cat.  He creates a calming presence and will often sit with the person who most needs him.
