The Mewseum


I have two cats. Cats, and pets in general, in my opinion, are highly under appreciated in public spaces.

This exhibit is about this history of cats.

People take it for granted taht cats are wide-spread throughout the world, but they actually have a rich and immersive migration and development story like our own, that is woefully uncovered.
