Cat Mewseum HOW WE STARTED
Redner's Rescued Cat Figurine Mewseum came together as a happy accident. It was the summer of 2018 and I had stopped drinking alcohol on April 9th of that year. I needed something to do to occupy my time. So, on a whim I said to my wife “let's go find some cats” and we headed off to some secondhand shops to find some cats. When the first few pieces of “cat stuff” were purchased, I had no intention of opening a cat figurine mewseum. Going to look for the cats was a way to spend time with my wife, a way to stay away from alcohol and it turned out to be a lot of fun. So then began the weekends of secondhand shopping looking for more cat figurines and cat stuff and anything that was cat related. About a year and a half later I looked around our house and said, “I have a great idea, we’re going to open the house to the public one day a month, we’re going to ask for a $5 donation and we're going to give all the money away”. And that is when the idea for Redner's Rescued Cat Figurine Mewseum had come to life.
Redner’s Rescued Cat Figurine Mewseum Moving Forward
We have come a long way since the beginning. We have traveled thousands of miles, have met a lot of wonderful people, and made many memories collecting the things you will find here at the museum. This place has grown into much more than simple cat figurines. It has become a place of hope, joy, happiness and giving. I only mention the part about my drinking because honestly, if I had never become an alcoholic, I do not think any of this ever would have happened. I am still sober today. Life has a funny way of working things out. If you are out there struggling, please reach out for help, do not give up hope, please keep on fighting because you are worth it. With all that being said, I invite you to come on over, take a walk around the place, I promise you have never seen anything like it.
