One tribute addressed to Dave read: 'We've enjoyed your company immensely over the years and will miss and remember you.' Tony Brown, 66, knew the cat as Atkinson. 'When he died, we thought we ought to put a notice up because he was so well known,' he said.
'Suddenly, there was an extraordinary outpouring of grief and this Diana-like shrine began to grow. It was only then we discovered just how many people were looking after him.
'You couldn't own Atkinson, he was his own cat. My epitaph for him is he was owned by no one but belonged to everyone.'
