Happy Friday everyone! We are very lucky to have Cat Scout Felix as our special guest today.
The Kuching Cat Museum in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia houses a collection of over 4000 objects devoted to every aspect of cat history, lore and art. Its collections were transferred to the City from a private collection, and were first exhibited in Kuala Lumpur in 1987.
This museum is the world’s largest museum devoted to cats.
From the Beckoning Cats (“Maneki Neko” to Hello Kitty, there is something here for every cat lover!
Next is the Katten Kabinet in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is an art museum featuring mixed media works depicting cats. Some very famous artists are represented, including Picasso, Rembrandt and others. The museum is housed in a 17th century townhouse in the banking district. Its founder and his 5 cats are still in residence. The cats wander throughout the exhibit areas, and seem very cozy!
The Museum was founded in 1990 by Bob Meijer in memory of his departed cat, J.P. Morgan! Definitely worth a visit when you’re in Northern Europe.Next time Maggie will tell you about some American cat museums!
