A cat steals a crepe from a priest in the middle of a sermonFeb 172021
Tiger resides in the Canterbury Deanery and is active in religious life from time to time.
The cat Tiger screwed up again during an 'online' morning sermon that British priest Robert Willis gave in the garden of the Canterbury deanery. Specifically, he put it in the plate with crepes that was next to the priest and, succumbing to temptation, stole one.
The presence of the delicacy on the table was due to the celebration of Shrove Tuesday, commonly known in England as Crepe Day, which precedes the Lenten fast and this year fell on February 16.
The priest was unfazed by the 'looting'. "Well Tiger found some breakfast, it's pancake day for him too so we're not too sorry," he said. "Like the rest of us on crepe day, Tiger was shaking off his temptations before Lent begins tomorrow," he added.

Tiger is one of the four cats living in the Canterbury deanery and it is not the first time that he has decided to actively participate in religious life. During the morning sermon on July 6 last year, the cat stole milk from the jug that the priest had recklessly left next to a kettle without suspecting that the cat was going to get it.
Another feline resident, Leo, whose disappearance under Willis's cassock during another 'online' sermon also became famous, went viral.
