Soon, Ohio will no longer be remembered as the home of the Rock 'n' Roll or Football Halls of Fame. Those two hallowed halls will soon be overshadowed by the largest Cat Museum in the U.S.

The Cat Fancier's Association Foundation (the CFA's nonprofit historical branch) will open a Cat Museum in June on the ground floor of CFA's new office building in Alliance, Ohio.

The Foundation has collected cat memorabilia and artifacts for over 20 years and will showcase the collection in the museum which will include a library with over 1,500 books.

The Foundation will accept donations for the museum's collection. Cat collectibles are welcome, especially breed-related information, old magazines, cat show memorabilia, and artwork. Click here for more information about donating.

The graphite drawing at the top is a portrait of Jackson Brown by Tracy Ahrens. The cat died in 2010 of feline infectious peritonitis, just before he turned eight months old. The drawing was recently accepted for the museum's collection. You can follow Ahrens on Facebook here, or visit her website.
