Missoula, Montana: The Squashed CatOfficially named "Cattin' Around," the big feline was sculpted in 1992 by Mike Hollern. Seven feet high, 18 feet long, made of 1.5 tons of concrete; its concave back serves as a birdbath. Critics say the cat looks as if it's been run over by a truck, hence its adopted name.
