Pope Benedict also likes cats. Apparently Pope Paul VI had to be persuaded not to eat the frogs in this pond.

A children’s book that details the relationship between Pope Benedict XVI and his fish pond has been described as a window into his soul. … “The Mystery of the Little Pond” tells the story of a young goldfish and his fondness for “the man in white” who feeds him bread during the summer months when Benedict stays at his summer residence of Castel Gandolfo near Rome.
