During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, illustrations of cats take us on a journey through the rise of feline significance, which will be explored in The Cats Meow. The symbolism behind cats throughout history is rather substantial, from guardians to prostitution and many things in between, which will be explored in this exhibition. For example, in Asia, cats are often recognized as animals that are able to see spirits and movements unidentifiable to the human eye. Demonstrating their value in storefronts and shops, they caught mice, which developed into an exceptional method of pest control. Queen Victoria of England introduced domesticated cats as a household pet, helping many develop the simple appreciation and acceptance of cats in the household. In today’s feline culture, many of us consider a cat a necessity to our homes. They really are The Cat’s Meow.
