Great Cat of Kuching

Statue in Kuching

A 2.5m-high white pussycat with wire whiskers is perched at the eastern end of Jln Padungan on a traffic island just outside the Chinese ceremonial gate. During festivals the feline is adorned with red paper lanterns, streamers or even a party hat. The statue was erected in 1988 to celebrate Kuching attaining city status.
