This 19-foot fiberglass cat in a Santa hat lives two blocks away from me, on top of a clock maker's garage. The cat has been on this roof since 1978 and the rest of the residents on the block have probably been there that long too. It's a block where no one moves in or out, and everyone has time for a neighborly chat. Except for the dogs that guard the cat. They like to make their ownership clear.
A friend of mine once wrote an article about the giant cat. I'll see if I can find it.
