Scottish Wildcat - Felis silvestris silvestris No feral or farmcat, the Wildcat is a true wild species of cat; it was here long before we were and long before the domestic cat had first been bred by ancient farmers. Unique to Britain, and now only found in Scotland, the Scottish Wildcat is currently classified as an isolated island population of the European wildcat, Felis silvestris silvestris (Felidae)

High Cross at the Rock of Cashel in Ireland. A High Cross is a standing cross with a circle, made of stone and often richly ornamented. High Crosses exist in Celtic parts of Britain and Ireland; the Irish High Cross has become more famous because of its distinctive shape (the ringed Celtic Cross) and the amount and quality of decoration. The Rock of Cashel, also known as Cashel of the Kings, is situated in county Tipperary in Ireland.

There is a picture of Princess Victoria ("Toria"), daughter of Edward VII & Queen Alexandra (1868-1935) holding a cat on the royal yacht (see picture). I don't how significant this is. It does indicate that a royal personage kept a Siamese cat. The picture was taken in about 1914.
