A bronze sculpture of “The Great Catsby” will be dedicated at 4 p.m. Thursday near 40th Avenue East and the Lakewalk in Duluth.
Catsby was a feline with wanderlust that lived in a home in the Lakeside neighborhood but frequently made its way to a variety of locations. He was a favorite at Duluth East High School and at the Ecumen Lakeshore senior living center. The gray-and-white cat 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 near three of his favorite haunts: East High School, Ecumen Lakeshore and the Lakewalk. It was funded by money raised from a 5K run held in May.
