LONDON (AP) - There is a new kitten at the Winston Churchill estate.

The orange-colored rescue cat is there to comply with the late British leader's request that there always be a cat of that color living at Chartwell.

Churchill also indicated that the cat should have white chest fur, white paws, and be named Jock.

The unusual request stems from the affection Churchill felt for a kitten given to him on his 88th birthday by Jock Colville, one of his secretaries.

The new kitten was formally known as Malley but has been renamed Jock VI.
