An abandoned cat has been found a new home after showing up at royal milliner Philip Treacy in south-west London.
Bogart was dumped in a cat box left by a skip overnight near the hat-maker’s offices in Westminster.
After being found by Philip Treacy’s production manager Jutta Freedlander, Bogart was taken into the milliner’s offices and made to feel welcome by staff who are currently working on hats for the royal wedding on April 29.
He was taken to nearby Battersea Dogs & Cats Home for a check-up and given a place to stay for a week.
After nobody claimed him he was rehomed with Jutta.
She said: “Philip is a real animal lover and wanted to make sure Bogart was happy.
“When the royal wedding takes place Bogart will be relaxing at home with me and Dargo (my Rottweiler), and I’m sure he’ll be looking out for the hats he had a sneak peek of.”
Philip Treacy has created hats for numerous members of the royal family including the Duchess of Cornwall’s wedding head-dress in 2005.
To celebrate the royal wedding, Battersea will be offering free entry to visitors across its three sites on April 29.
