The Kattenkabinet Amsterdam is just another of the city’s quirky and different places you can visit. There’s nowhere else quite like it! For all cat overs, it is a must. It is also a great way to visit one of the beautiful buildings on Amsterdam’s Herengracht. The Kattenkabinet was created by Bob Meijer as a celebration of the life of his pet cat, John Pierpont Morgan (1966-1983). The cat had a reputation for being stubborn and headstrong. Over the years, the cat was offered presents by its many admirers. Many other cat-related objects and artworks were added as time went by. We have been wanting to visit this unique place for a very long time. We finally did it this week and here are a selection of photos we took during our visit. We hope that our photos give you the desire to visit the Kattenkabinet Amsterdam too. It’s fantastic!
