Gerald 'The York Minster Cat' 1st May 2021

Thank you to everyone that contributed towards this project! Without you this couldn’t have happened and my family and I are truly grateful. The sculpture made in Tadcaster Limestone and yesterday’s wonderful event with York actor Mark Addy was a very fitting tribute to our much loved cat Gerald. We loved Gerald but he wasn’t just our cat, he was everyone’s cat and as a result of this sculpture (which will be permanently installed in Holy Trinity Church on Goodramgate towards the end of May/June time) he will now always be everyone’s cat and accessible to all. If you missed yesterday’s event you will find live streams on my Facebook page Cathedral Cat Gerald of York and also on York Mix. From the bottom of my heart thank you ❤️🙏 Justine & family xxx

I loved seeing Gerald round and about and was so sorry to hear of his death. I have a couple of pictures of him curled up on a cushion at the sol ast summer bar at the side of the minster from two years ago. I think it is a lovely idea to commemorate a statue to remember him by.

He brought joy to so many. Sadly I did not get to meet him in person, but feel through the beautiful photos of Charley, I know and love him anyway! Lots of love to family xx

I have been to York many times, but have never met Gerald or Donald, but I love seeing photos of him. He was a beautiful cat. So sad he died so young.
