The Lunt working cats, famous throughout the land, need names…

All proper cats have three names, this makes them Jellicle.

THE LUNT ROMAN FORT NEEDS HELP TO NAME ITS PUUURRRFECT NEW RECRUITS

 

The Lunt Roman Fort has employed two expert hunters in a bid to help keep the fort safe from incoming sieges by their enemies. Two elite feles have started working at the museum in order to keep the ground safe from vermin attacks.

Feles, or cats, were introduced to Britain by the Romans two thousand years ago. The new recruits are a mixture of white, black and tortoiseshell in colouring and have fearless but graceful personalities along with sharp, rending claws.

The Lunt Roman Fort is asking for help from its visitors to complete the cats’ names. Like the Romans they need three names but unfortunately only have two. The tom, or male, is called Drusus Pollux and the molly, or female, is Drusilla Castor.

The winner will have the joy of having their name going down in mouse catching history and a glorious, private guided tour of the Lunt Roman Fort in March.

To submit your entry contact Dominic Russell or Andrew Peel on 024 7678 6142 or email luntromanfort@theherbert.org by Tuesday 31 January 2012.
