Fall is in the air and now is the PURRfect season to stock up on Quilts. The American Museum of the House Cat will be offering a Sidewalk Fundraiser on-site on Saturday, October 14, 2023 and October 21, 2023. All proceeds received will benefit our Museum Expansion Fund. We have envisioned plans to expand, enhance, and improve our humble museum. We will be adding a few special features as well to bring the teaching of history of Felines to younger minds in the form of PLAY.

For those who love the Arts, Quilts & Cats this is a can’t miss opportunity. We hope to see our local community who support our Catman2 Shelter join us at the WNC Cat Museum for a day fun filled day. Animal Lovers, please support your community, small business, nonprofits, and help the MuseumCats show Educational Museums matter in WNC. Learning the History of the House Cat can be Entertaining, Inspiring and Exciting.

Food fit for an Opossum
A plea from The American Museum of the House Cat

“When I eat at the Huddle House, I always save a little something for the unfortunate critter like a mouse or the little opossum that comes begging at my kitchen door. He or She, I know not which, must have babies in the mix. I cannot let it starve, you know, that deal a nasty blow. Opossums do all they can to reduce the waste from my trash can, please do the same if you can. No opossum should have to go hungry and cry. We humans have disturbed their habitat and I don't understand why we did that but we did it and that is that. So, when you have left over items from your meal make it custom, make a deal. Give those vittles to little wild critter even if it’s a slimy eel.”

Happy Caturday! I know this image has been shared a lot over the years, but did you know that is my photo of my cat Pierre? I did a photo series with a bunch of kitties wearing scarves, posed next to pumpkins, in my next door neighbor's yard. They have the best trees that dump so many leaves! If you want to purchase prints of Pierre and his pumpkin, you can! https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/151497250

A little lesson from :

Did you know???

The Blue Ridge Mountains stretch 550 miles from North GA to PA, encompassing more than 34,000 square miles of mountains, forests, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls in 8 states.

The Blue Ridge range is part of the much larger Appalachian Mountains range. But the Blue Ridge also has myriad sub-ranges, including the Great Smoky Mountains, Black Mountains, Craggy Mountains, and more.

It's home to the tallest mountains east of the Mississippi River, with 20+ peaks in North Carolina alone that measure over 6,000 feet in elevation.

Update: He has been discharged and is home recovering.

I’m closing up early so I can go deal with some hospital stuff for Harold. He’s recovering well but it’s a tough recovery especially for an octogenarian. Pic for attention - it’s an enamel pin that’s among our auction stuff… which I’m getting closer and closer to being able to post. Life things are taking precedence right now but it’ll happen before you know it! 💖

We will reopen Sunday by appointment 😃

The OG Catman Harold is having surgery this morning to repair a big hernia and a little hernia that I’ve named Herman and Sherman, respectively. When I got to his house at 5am to pick him up, I said “good morning, Sunshine” and he responded “No he left already, he’s gone already.” 😂 He’s doing just fine and is cracking jokes for the medical staff. Please keep him in your thoughts today.

Unsinkable Sam is a legendary cat said to have survived the sinking of three separate military vessels for two separate countries. Sam, originally named Oscar, was a ship cat on the German battleship Bismarck. After the ship’s sinking, Unsinkable Sam was rescued from the wreckage by the British Navy. Post rescue, Sam is said to have served on the HMS Cossack and the HMS Ark Royal, surviving the sinking of both. While the authenticity of this legend is sometimes doubted, the sailors of the British Navy believed it wholeheartedly, and a cat by the name of Unsinkable Sam retired to the Home for Sailors in Belfast in 1941 until his death in 1955.

Sharing for Purrayers. Kaleb is making sure Dr Harold is being taken care of…& the MuseumCats will keep you informed as we know more.

UPDATE: He is okay but staying at the hospital for more tests as a precaution. He’s looking forward to being back with his house cats and making an appearance at the museum again.

Harold got a yucky case of food poisoning and I took him to the hospital tonight for some treatment and tests. Please wish him a speedy recovery! I’ll keep y’all updated on our favorite OG Catman. Here’s a pic of him wearing one of his cool cat shirts - he’s over his denim suit era and is now in his ✨ Cool Shirt Era ✨.

Introducing the sweet… the handsome… the LARGE… the well-educated…

DR. GIGGLES!

Accomplished, bookish, cultured… Dr. Giggles didn’t go to medical school for ten years for your to call him MISTER! He is a sweet, very fluffy 10 year old neutered male who had to come live at Catman2 because his mom got sick and was unable to care for him. She had raised him from a newborn and he has understandably been a little depressed. He’s started coming out of his shell and just had a wellness visit with a clean bill of health. He’s just under 20 #, so you’ll have to lift with the knees with this fella! We would love to place him in a loving indoor only home quickly so he has less adjustments to make. He has been used to living with a dog and will be adjusting to other cats here.

Please tell the esteemed Dr. Giggles about yourself here: https://form.jotform.us/93037105972154
