The cat ornament is not the first thing to have been taken at the cemetery; silk flowers placed on another grave have also been reported to have been stolen.
Chuck Clark's insight:

Why would anybody do something like this? Why take something tha carries tremendous value to somebody, but is of little to no value to anybody else? I view this more as vandalism than theft. Dispicable, none the less.

Oak Hill Cemetery officials have begun strictly enforcing long-time rules regarding artificial flowers and other decorations at gravesites.
Chuck Clark's insight:

Interesting. It would be nice if the article had explained their rationale for this decision. I have no doubt they will get some backlash from loved ones of those buried at Oak Hill.

Chuck Clark's insight:

I'm not much of an Elvis fan, but you have to admit...anybody who attracts more than 600,000 visitors each year to his grave, nearly 40 years after his passing, has some serious star power!

Chuck Clark's insight:

A lot of these owe at least part of their popularity to whom they are buried near. Obviously, Arlington attracts a lot of visitors. The Hollywood cemeteries do, too...for all the wrong reasons.
