Alley Cats

The other day we found the "Alley Cats" alley in El Cajon Ca. Located 1/2 block north of Main Street (the first alley)

The alley is decorated with, well, Cats!  Fat cats and silly cats.  Scardy cats and even some rats.  Singing cats and wild cats.  Cats at work and sexy cats.  Just about any old cat you can think of. 

 Just lots of cats!!

The paintings cover most of the walls, fences, trash bins, electric boxes, over some doors, and any other available space that suits the artists vision.



The alley is between the El Cajon courthouse and Magnolia street, behind Por Favor Mexican Restaurant whose entrance is on Main Street.  On the other side of the alley is the Art Museum of Olaf Weighorst.  Mostly wild west, some American Indian paintings - each painting has at least one horse.  El Cajon has some pretty cool stuff in little corners, if you look hard enough.
