Hermitage Museum Run by 70 Cats

70 cats live in this historic museum in Russia. Cats have been working for the Hermitage as mousers since the 18th century. “Now the cats have their headquarters in the basement. They are fed, cared for and given medical attention.”

Each cat has its own personality. They are even considered to be good luck. It’s really a Meowseum.

    Strange. I love cats, and I love art, but I’m not sure about them occupying the same space. I’ll have to think about that. :)

    Sweet story! I hear that Russians respect cats, and that’s important to me. Although, I have to hope the basement has windows and fresh air. Otherwise, I’m not thrilled.
