The Corky the cat pictures, of which there are few, are usually dated to early 1966. Given some are used, including on the cover, in the February 1966 issue of Beatles Book Monthly, I'm happier suggesting late 1965.

While there's a good chance the jacket photo was taken at the same time, @50yearslate I wouldn't like to commit beyond same time period given the location (which I'm shocked @AppleScruffJunior had no idea of - "shocked and stunned"). The photos were taken close to the pool area at Kinfauns, where the white fence can be clearly seen:

This aerial shot shows the grassy, tree area to the top left where several were taken on the other side of the fence from the pool:

This model of Kinfauns shows the fence quite well:

The fence (now weathered) is also seen in this later self-portrait of Patti and George taken by Patti:

Can I put forward the defense that I'm sick and didn't feel like looking too intensely at the photo? 

I also couldn't be arsed looking too hard.

 

Then again these are just excuses that show that I'm not in actual fact a George fan.

No it's true, I find the true me is so devoid of personality that I've had to concoct this image of me being an obsessed George Harrison fan when I in fact am totally indifferent towards him.

Of course, I did reference (mainly) reliable sources for where the Corky the cat pictures were taken...

@AppleScruffJunior said on 1 March 2018 in this thread

He had loadsss of cats from about the time he bought Kinfauns until his death, a lot of the photos of him at home feature his cats. 

A few of them I can remember are Corky, Rupert and Joss Stick. Corky being a white cat (sorry I'm bad at cat breeds), and Rupert and Joss Stick were Siamese. To earn their keep, the cats used to model in cat food adverts a-hard-days-night-george-9.

^One of the Siamese 

At least one of the Siamese lived in Friar Park, however there only appears to be photos of Corky at Kinfauns.

I love that question so much and I've never even thought about it before.

George bought Rocky in 1965 and painted him in 1967. I think if he didn't have a name when he was blue, he definitely got it when he was psychedelic. 

R. Raccoon was written probably in or around '68. 

While I don't have a definitive date for when Rocky Guitar was christened, I imagine the guitar came before the raccoon.
