The sculpture is known as the Gayer-Anderson cat after Major Robert Grenville Gayer-Anderson, the man who discovered it in Cairo, Egypt. He donated the statue to the British Museum. The statue is a representation of the cat-goddess Bastet. The cat wears jewelry and a protective widget amulet. A winged scarab appears on the chest and head, it is 42 cm high and 13 cm wide. Andre Toulon has a smaller version of it in his puppet trunk, though it has never been revealed in the story how or why he has it and why he was concerned about hiding it from the Nazis. It is possible that he got it in Cairo, Egypt while he was doing his Faust puppet show in 1912 or from the events of the unmade Puppet Wars trilogy. Danny Coogan had the cat in his bedroom when he took the puppets home. When a Nazi agent was on his way to capture the puppets, it was seen packed up in the trunk and stashed it away.
Years later. The puppeteer scientist, named Robert K. Toulon, transform the statue in to a cat puppet and named it “K”.
