A large statue of a black and white cat sits on top of the Catford Shopping Centre sign. The cat has a mischievous grin and reaches down to paw at the 'F' in the sign. The cat has become a popular local symbol and when, in 2017, Lewisham Council proposed to have it taken down, many Catford locals signed, and won, a petition for the sculpture to stay.
