About KattenKabinet (Cat Cabinet)
The KattenKabinet is an art museum in Amsterdam devoted to works depicting cats. It specializes in art representing cats.

Sculptures, paintings, posters and books about the felines are exhibited in a serious, professional way - almost too serious not to provoke a smile on a visitors face.
