Mysterious red-brick cat finds a home near old Tiger Stadium

What do you think, is this a salute to the baseball stadium that once stood across the freeway?

A crosstown homage to Bricktown?

Who knows what it is? I've got no info on this cool brick sculpture I spotted across the freeway from the old Tiger Stadium, but it definitely seemed worth posting.

Just a few feet off the I-75 southbound service drive, not far from Trumbull, somebody used a pile of old red bricks to create what looks like a cat sitting in the ground. It's an odd place to create a work of art, but what the hell, at times Detroit can be an odd place.

If anybody knows anything about the Brick Cat - Who built it? Why? - let us know.
