Now I read that the lion is thought to be a large ginger cat called Tom or a Maine Coon called Teddy Bear. Of course it’s Tom and you have read about him earlier on this blog. Mr Ginger Tom insinuated himself into the portrait of the Mona Lisa (see blog entry of March 8th) then sneakily crossed the English Channel avoiding UK Customs and Border Control and reincarnated himself as Bob, a busker’s companion in Covent Garden (see March 31st). Now he has reappeared as a lion. The impudence and wanderlust of that particular ginga is boundless and I just wonder where he will turn up next.
