    We call that a Chessie cat or just "Chessie" over here in the US, at least
    in my part. It's named after the Chesapeake/Ohio railroad logo of a
    sleeping cat. But in that case it's just the head and front paws. Very
    recognizeable and cute IMHO.

    Those logos have actually become collectors items for those who can find
    old adverts. and litho's.

    I know, I know, fluf on the kernel list again. I'm a baaaaad boy. But
    we can't be "stuffy business" all the time.
