Jock the Fifth who lives at Chartwell in Westerham
Alice Martin and Jock V at Quebec in Westerham
WINSTON Churchill once requested there would always be a cat with four white paws and a white bib "in comfortable residence" at Chartwell.
Following tradition, the property recently welcomed Jock the Fifth, a 19-week-old rescue kitten.
Churchill owned a marmalade cat that he named Jock, after Sir Jock Colville, one of his private secretaries.
Jock meant so much to Churchill he attended many wartime cabinet meetings with him.
Having been rescued by Cats Protection, he was then adopted by Chartwell's new house and collections manger Alice Martin last month.
Jock V lives in the top flat in the house and spends his time exploring and being pampered by office staff.
He has also developed an unlikely love of water and jumps into the sink at every opportunity.
Visitors will be able to see Jock V when the house reopens in the spring as he will venture into the grounds shortly before March 2011.
