Satin the Ginger Cat

We were walking along Old Street today to grab a bite to eat before going to check out Skyfall at the cinema. Along the way we spotted this plaque fronting a cute little garden:

Satin Park. In memory of the Ginger Cat. Satin. 1993-2005

The area is obviously dedicated to a cat that once prowled these parts, but whose cat? I am intrigued as to the story behind this tiny corner of Islington and I am going to do some digging and see what I can discover. I’ll report back on anything I find, but do let us know if you know anything about this heralded feline!

UPDATE (23/11/12): Mystery solved. Find out who Satin the Ginger Cat was.
