"The Great Catsby" dedicated near Duluth's Lakewalk

Posted: Updated:

A cat that once made a lot of friends in Duluth's East end will now look after the Lakewalk forever.

"The Great Catsby" was known by possibly hundreds of people around Duluth East High School. 

After he passed away, a go fund me page, a fundraiser run and t-shirt sales raised money to build a likeness of the friendly feline. 

People gathered around to tell stories of Catsby as the bronze statue was unveiled. 

"It still blows my mind that this many people loved our cat as much as we did," said former owner Susan Hagge. "Yeah! And it really means a lot because as we've stated a couple of times, we had no idea his impact was that large and extended."

More than two dozen people attended the dedication.
