It is supposed that their progenitors were left there by the workmen when the building was being constructed. They cannot be got hold of or counted, but food is placed for them from time to time. Visitors need, however, not apprehend any inconvenience or danger from their existence, as they never penetrate above the basement. Endeavours have been made from time to time to reduce their numbers by humane methods. It has not up to now been found possible to exterminate them entirely, but the management propose to take steps before long to reduce them to the number really required, when this odd state of things will no doubt cease to exist.</p> <br /> <sub> <em>Homes of the Passing Show</em>, "The Savoy Hotel and Restaurant", 1900.</sub> <br /> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <br /> </div> <br /> <div id="quickcont"> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.angelsmyth.com/savoy_hotel_london.html">Savoy Hotel, London</a></li> <li><a href="/savoy_hotel_cats.html">Savoy Hotel, Cats</a></li> <li><a href="/Old_Savoy_London.html">The Highway of the Universe</a></li> <li class="c1"><br /></li> <li><a href="http://www.angelsmyth.com/Society_and_Restaurants.html">Society and Restaurants</a></li> <li><a href="/gourmet_paradise.html">A Gourmet's Paradise</a></li> <li><a href="/savoy_hotel_features.html">Savoy Hotel, Special Features</a></li> </ul> </div> <img src="/images/as_logo01.gif" width="100" height="85" alt="image" class="center" /> <div id="footer"> <div class="footboxl"> <br /> <img src="/nouveau/Savoy_Hotel_London_1906.jpg" width="245" height="315" alt="Hotel" /> </div> <div class="footboxm"> <p class="readmore">&hearts;
