Hunting for the hidden cats painted in different colours is great fun, if you walk up towards the station then around the golf course you can spot quite a few. Great for kids and adults

We had a grea time seeking out all the different cats all around town. Everyone put a lot of thought and artistic creativity into each one.

Is Mark confusing something? The Wildcat Experience is a treasure hunt for painted models of Wildcats - not a lodge!
