Monumental Kitty

We visited the Monumental Kitty and were so happy that the graffiti artist hadn't gotten to it. For an almost deserted neighborhood, this was wonderful. If it had been in Los Angeles I'm afraid I couldn"t say the same. I loved the cat. The landscaping needed a little care but the lack of graffiti made it okay.
