Cat [gone]
Wheat Ridge, CO
2008: 2012:
This Cat statue is about six feet tall. It was installed in front of the Cat Hospital of Wheat Ridge. By 2011, the vet's office had closed and the cat statue was being repainted. At that point, the building housed The Cathouse, a used furniture store. By 2015, the business had changed again and the statue was gone.

Santa Barbara, CA
Jersey City, NJ
(now Pine Island, NY)
This life-sized Cat sculpture in Santa Barbara is perched on the wall of a parking lot downtown. It was a gift to the city from the masonry contractor who built the wall. [map]

The Cat statue in Jersey City is 19 feet long and made of fiberglass. It was originally part of a parade float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1969. "Lucky the Christmas Cat" was installed on top of a box shaped like cheese which disguised a Jeep inside. People in mouse costumes walked with the float. The Cat which wears a Santa hat had moving eyes. After the parade, Macy's wanted the Cat taken to the dump but it was saved. It was moved a few times over the years. It was at the Jersey City location from 1995-2005. These photos are from 2004. It was then moved to Kearney, NJ. In 2022, it was moved to Blue Arrow Farm in Pine Island, NY. It has been repainted.

Felix the Cat
Carson, CA
Topanga, CA
Berkeley, CA
This Felix the Cat statue is installed at Back in the Day Classics which sells classic cars and memorabilia. This statue is not for sale. It came from Felix Chevrolet in Los Angeles where there are several statues like this inside.

This Cat statue in Topanga has been installed in front of a residence since 2012. The owners bought it from an antiques store. Its origins are unknown. When this photo was taken in 2014, the cat was dressed up with a pirate hat and knife for International Talk Like a Pirate Day. The statue is dressed in other costumes throughout the year. [map]

This Cat statue in Berkeley is installed at Katz Antiques. The statue appears to have been produced by the same company that made the Cat in Topanga. The owner believes that the statue came from a Petco and that these statues were produced in the 1990s. These Jack Russell Terrier statues may have been made by the same company. [map]
