The latest Archive of the month looks at the cats recorded in the King's archives. It mentions EM Forster's cat and TS Eliot's as well as a cat seen by the narrator in Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own.

There is also a letter by the ghost story writer MR James (once the Provost of King's), in which he describes his battle with a college cat, Cato.

See Friends: Feline friends, the first of a new series of Archive of the month with friends as the theme.
