Of cource there is a statue of Hodge outside his and Johnson’s house in London. Hodge guardening the dictionary.

Nikolai Alexandrovich Yaroshenko (1846-1898) once painted some puppies but let’s be the bigger person and forgive him. When he painted cats who owned avid book readers he was awesome.
Ivan Kramskoi (1837-1887) only painted 2 paintings of people relaxing with cats. Not enough!
In Amsterdam there is a museum dedicated to cats, specializing in art representing cats.. Katten Kabinet was founded to preserve the memory of the owner´s cat John Pierpont Morgan- and for the love of cats.
Who are the best guards of such a museum? Of course there are catguards living there, serving 24/7
