“Welcome to Seneca”

Location: Buchanan Park-Ram Cat Alley
Artist: Jim Juras


Alley Cat “sCATenger Hunt”

Twelve steel cats were laser cut by Hamilton Career Center Welding Students, then painted by local artists and “hidden” throughout downtown Seneca for you and your family to search out. Locations of the cats changes regularly, so you can have a new adventure each time you head into town.

Brought to you by a grant provided by Hughes Investments – “Ten at the Top” Outdoor Art Project

Current Cat Sponsors: Ann Cramer ~ City of Seneca ~ CatBus ~ Lighthouse Restaurant
