I happened across this picture on reddit today and wondered about the backstory:

The post intimated that this cat was named George. A little digging intimates that it’s not impossible, but that there were several cats who lived on or around the bridge, some of which never came down. I find that a bit hard to believe, but you can judge for yourself.

These images were found at Purr-n-Fur – there’s an article there with more information on the cats.
