The painter J M W Turner cut a hole in one of his paintings so his pet cats could use it as a cat flap.
It's believed he cut a hole in the canvas of Fishing Upon The Blythe-Sand, which was blocking a broken window.
Joyce Townsend, the Tate Britain's senior conservation scientist, tells documentary makers she had found paw prints.
