If the most important thing a theatre can have is good programming and the second most important thing is a good bar, the third is a good pet. We recently met a few of London's theatrical animals, and even got to interview some of them on Twitter. Here are some of our favourite photos from our shoots with Pluto the BAC cat and Hazel the Park Theatre dog, plus some snaps of Kiefer the Unicorn Theatre rabbit and the Bush Theatre's two cats.

    During Punchdrunk's smash 2007 show 'The Masque of the Red Death', Pluto was tasked with the job of sitting on a cushion by a fire.

    Punchdrunk have moved on, but while Pluto's acting days are over, he's still very good at sitting on stuff.
