Salvador Dalí and his Ocelot, Babou. He traveled everywhere with his feline companion. At one point, Dalí brought Babou to a swanky New York restaurant and tied him to the table leg. A woman protested the fact that a wild animal was allowed into a dining establishment, but Dalí explained that it was only a cat he’d painted in op-art style. Embarrassed, the woman agreed that the animal was indeed a domestic cat.
