Cat Sentinel on Winifred's Grave

I saw this grave in a Roman Catholic graveyard in Lancashireand noticed the stone cat that stands guard.   I used my iPhone to get these shots and I am very taken by the eyes. They are so bright - whether monochrome or colour. The grave is that of Winifred and John Barnes who died in 1964 and 1966, respectively. Like many of the graves in this graveyard, the stone bears the words:

Jesus Mercy - Mary Help

You do see some odd things on graves

That cat is quite intense! Did anyone else in this cemetery have a similar guardian?
