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.
