Motivation Monday – the story of a cat statue just off Fleet Street

Hodge

I am a bit of a mad cat woman. Although catless right now, I fully expect to meander through my latter years surrounded by sarcastic plotting felines. So you can imagine my pure joy when I found a cat statue just off Fleet Street.

The statue is of Samuel Johnson’s cat Hodge. Although the statue is meant to celebrate Johnsons’ contribution to literature, to me it just goes to show how much a man can love a cat.

To go and see Hodge for yourself, head down to Gough Square.
