Two cats asleep

We have two College cats! Finch (left) and Baines (right) started properly as Christ's Cats with our 2022 entry cohort, after being our kitten "offer holders" for the seven months before.

You can follow Finch & Baines on Instagram


Finch (the tabby) is currently the more confident cat and the one who likes to be out and about in the grounds the most (especially Second Court and Third Court), but if you keep your eyes peeled, you may also see Baines (the black cat) peeping out at you from the flowerbeds (especially in The Fellows Garden and the Darwin Garden).

You can follow their progress on our Twitter Feed (#ChristsCats) and instagram.

Recent Christ's Cats


Rocket has retired now (she's an old lady!) but she's very happy, and living with a member of College staff.


Milton was the College Cat some time ago - from 2006 and then he retired in 2009. He has now passed away but is remembered very fondly.
