Some background for those outside the ATL: Catlanta is a local artist who makes these little painted cats. Some are cardboard, like mine, and some are magnetic. Catlanta is a mysterious figure. No one knows who he really is. He communicates with his fans via Facebook and Twitter, and announces when he's about to do a "kitten drop." He hides the kittens in locations around the city and takes pictures of them in their hiding places, then posts the photos to give his fans some visual clues. The real fun begins as the fans search for the kittens! Read more about Catlanta in this CNN interview.
I've been stalking Catlanta for a few months now, and have been foiled every time until today. Sometimes I recognize a location, but I can't make it there in time. Another time I thought I recognized where the kitten was, but I was wrong. So frustrating (yet fun!).
Today, my persistent sleuthing finally paid off. My husband had just dropped me off at work, and I turned on my computer and immediately saw Facebook news of a kitten drop. I recognized one of the hiding places as a coffee shop a few doors down from my work! So I called Anthony on his cell, and he was still right outside, so he dashed down the street and swooped up the kitten. Oh yeah...teamwork, baby! *high five*
[Edited later to add: I received a comment from Catlanta himself letting me know that my kitten is magnetic, too!]
