Mischievous Cat Steals Dean of Canterbury's Pancake During Shrove Tuesday Prayer

Canterbury Cathedral’s resident scene-stealing cat Tiger was up to his tricks again on Shrove Tuesday, when he decided to help himself to a pancake from Dean Robert Willis’s plate during morning prayer.

Footage tweeted by Canterbury Cathedral on February 16 shows Tiger eyeing up the pancakes as Willis reads.

Willis gently tries swatting the cat away from his breakfast, but Tiger perseveres and eventually manages to bag a tasty crepe.

Tiger, who is one of four cats who live at the cathedral, gained viral fame last summer when he drank from the dean’s milk jug during morning prayer. Credit: ©​Chapter of Canterbury Cathedral via Storyful
