A cat in windemere, Cumbria, England, has received an honour that no other cat has ever received - a telegram from the Queen! In recent years stories have started to emerge showing a more personable side to those at the palace, but this astonishing break from protocol has to be the best yet.

Owner Chris Evans (no connection to the DJ/Broadcaster of the same name) wrote to Buckingham Palace with a somewhat tongue in cheek letter letting them know about Flook's imminent birthday.
Evans says he never really expected a reply, but shortly before Christmas a letter arrived, signed by the Queen herself, congratulating Flook on her longevity.
"when I got the letter from Buckingham Palace I nearly fell over." He said.
