In German town, Benedict XVI known for love of cats, conversation - Yahoo! News:

"'I went with him once,' said Konrad Baumgartner, the head of the theology department at Regensburg University. 'Afterwards, he went into the old cemetery behind the church.

"'It was full of cats, and when he went out, they all ran to him. They knew him and loved him. He stood there, petting some and talking to them, for quite a long time. He visited the cats whenever he visited the church. His love for cats is quite famous.'

"...those who know the man known as 'God's Rottweiler' say his soft, human side has been ignored.

"The pope loves cats, can't resist Christmas cookies and, three months ago, waxed on about how he dreamed of retiring from the hectic life at the Vatican to enjoy his last years reading, writing and talking with friends."

Cats! We've found the Holy Father's flaw.
