The sculpture is a tribute to the Dudley's original owner, Liz Burrows, who was a founding member of Burgh Beautiful, who died in January 2012. Dudley was her much-loved rescue cat. She bequeathed a large legacy to Burgh Beautiful. Liz lived by the Union Canal with Dudley and was an active member of Linlithgow Union Canal Society. There is also a memorial bench to her on the opposite side of the canal to the statue.
