Arriving in Gough Square Mr Monkey worked out which house was Dr Johnson's when he spotted the plaque on the front. Before scampering up to the house he examined a statue of Hodge, Dr Johnson's cat. Dr Johnson claimed that Hodge was "a very fine cat, a very fine cat indeed" and fed him on oysters.
You can read about the house at the Dr Johnson's House website.
