kaspar, lucky number 14

London's Savoy Hotel prides itself so much on its quality of service that it will even provide you with a fourteenth guest, should you sit down unlucky number 13 at dinner. For whatever reason, your extra guest will be a cat. And to make sure the cat stays put, it's made of wood.

That would be Kaspar, a three-foot-tall sculpture of a black cat sculpted for the Savoy in 1926. When pressed into service, he is served every course, and is seated in one of the nice cushy chairs. For a little more of his story and some photos, go to Purr-n-Fur UK's webpage here.
