About 50 people gathered near the Lakewalk at 40th Avenue East in Duluth on Thursday afternoon for the dedication of a bronze sculpture of Catsby, a well-loved cat that wandered the neighborhood.

The gray-and-white cat, a favorite at Duluth East High School and at the nearby Ecumen Lakeshore senior living center, died when it was hit by a car a year ago.

The sculpture, created by local artist Ann Klefstad, shows Catsby mounted on a boulder; it was paid for with money raised by a fun run in May.
