What do you give to the Pontiff who has everything?
That was a question pondered recently by the Today Show’s Matt Lauer and Al Roker, who visited Pope Bendict XVI this week in Rome. Knowing the Pope is a renowned cat lover, they settled upon a lovely crystal Steuben figure titled Curious Cat. You can own the same figure for about $700.
Lauer explains how they chose the gift:
“We had heard that this Pope has a real love for cats so what was in that box was a beautiful crystal cat that, who knows, could be on the table of papal gifts right now. I’m not sure where that goes but he seemed to accept it and like it and, anyway, we just wanted to offer him some gift to show our appreciation for the time and generosity he showed us.”
