Tough Cat

I found this tough cat wandering through part of the gardens at Ronald McDonald House - he was one of a few steel creatures to be found in the long grasses. The cat is by local artist J. P. Schoss who uses all recycled steel in his work, much of it from old oil tanks and propane tanks. It's nice that the Ronald McDonald house has used art that the kids can relate to easily!

your tittle made me laugh ! Well done... Cats are tough indeed, but this one has a "santé de fer" (litterally "iron health", a French expression that mean very good health, and that I find appropriate here) !

Love to see cats walking along 'tall tail' like this one.

I took one look and thought - that's a metal sculpture - I took a second look and thought - no it's alive - took a third look and said - no definitely a sculptue - then I read your text which confirmed matters - certainly the artist has created a mean piece of work.

I think I need this one! Looks like my Meeps and I love that it is from recycled materials.

Nice garden piece.

Be careful. He looks like he is going to pounce.

Jean Pierre Schoss lives in the boonies of Uxbridge. If you like his work, you should go on the Uxbridge Studio Tour next September and see where he creates his art and from what. :))
