Would anyone know anything about the origin or significance of the sculptures of a cat and parrot (or maybe an owl?) on the façade of a building on Southwark Bridge Road (near the Ministry of Sound end, on the right hand side, just before the intersection with Borough Road). I have cycled past this building every day for the past 14 years and have always wondered why the architect would have done that. Was it to represent the pets of the householder maybe…

Possibly an owl rather than a parrot!

A previous thread didn't produce an explanation, though:
