Building Beasties

Our building is quite old. Fritz and I rarely get the see it from the outside, and when we do it means we on the way to or from the vets, so we're not paying too much attention to the finer architectural details.

So the feeders took some photos for us which show some of the other animals that grace the house :



Fritz, who lived on a farm for a little while, says these are sheep, and I can't really argue with him as I've never seen anything like these. Although they do seem to have handle-bars, just like the feeders bicyles. Good for climbing!

I do recognise the next one though, I've seen the Feeders cooking Fish before...hmmm tasty. This one looks too big for their pan though...



The last one is from inside, in the hallway we're told. Now this looks altogether familiar:



Fritz thinks it's there to indicate "Fritz Lives Here" or "Beware of the Cat" and he's now striking all sorts of poses to live up to his new-found reputation...



(I can tell you confidentially, he's not really any more threatening than the fish, but we'll let him enjoy his moment of attempted ferocity).

I am just a little tiny bit scairt of the sheeps because they got blank eyeballs.

I am pretty sure that the big lion is there to show that brave mancats live inside.

What an interesting building you live in! Upper West Side? I will have to send the maid there next time she is in NY to check it out! My building is old too, but more like in "falling apart" old...
That lion head is very impressive!

Ahoy, mateys! We live in a country 'partment, but my Momma lived in a NYC 'partment for a year. The pictures of your building are mighty interesting. Good guardian-lion pose, Fritz!

You live in a very nice building to have such wonderful carved creatures there adorning the outside... and the ferocious lion... yes, we do see some similarities with Fritz, not so bushy around the head... and Fritz, ... come on! we know you are just as gentle as a kitty cat.
However, to the unknowing....
