Cat With Donation Ball

Cat was there looking cute, but no ball of yarn.

Cat With Donation Yarn Ball

Kitty has been recently painted and continues to do its job collecting donations for the humane society. The mold used to create the fiberglass statue can be seen at F.A.S.T. Fiberglass Co. in their mold graveyard.

Cat statue.

Cat with Yarn Ball

The ball of yarn that the eight-foot-tall Tabby is holding is a "Kitty-bank" donation spot for the local Humane Society, where it sits. The yarn ball has a slot for sliding donations into it on the front, and is locked on the back. The paint job seems to be updated.

Small cat statue.

Big Cat with Yarn Ball

The Big Cat with Yarn Ball location on the map is accurate. The cat is pretty small and underwhelming.
