Observation: Because of a good friend, ELM today got to circle the upper and lower concourses of Ford Field, home to the Detroit Lions. It was a wonderfully unique experience to explore the building in the quiet evening hours and capture all the cat-themed artwork that the beautiful stadium has to offer. Go Lions…and thanks for supporting the arts in your own special way.

D-Fact: In 1992, Katie, a lioness, was rescued from a crack house in Detroit. Apparently, the residents of the house thought that a guard dog wasn’t intimidating enough. Fortunately, Katie was rescued and taken to the Detroit Zoo before she did serious damage. A year later, Percival, was rescued from the basement of an abandoned house. He, too, was taken to the zoo, where he enjoyed the larger habitat and presence of other lions.
