I run past this statue of a big, crouching cat, set back in a thicket on an outcropping of rock, every morning and have wondered for years what it was about. No plaque or explanation around it. Finally got off my lazy ass and took a picture of it this morning then looked it up and got the low down.
It's one of those little hidden gems of the city that would be easily missed but which makes for a little smile when you find it. It looks ferocious coming from north to south but up close, it becomes a sad cat who probably just missed the bird.
