Who are we?

A Bit of Background

The Cat Museum was open in 2014 till June 2018. It was Singapore’s and the World's first Cat Museum with Live Animals for Adoption. It was not for profit & run entirely by volunteers. We showcased beautiful feline inspired works of Art & Craft, had displays of fantastic facts about cats, and even had rescued cats & kittens, in the founder's home for you to interact with and even adopt one!


In September 2017, The Ministry of National Development & Minister Lawrence Wong issued an enforcement notice which did not permit the founder to foster cats in her home (as it was not deemed a "residential activity") and disallowed visitors to visit the Kitty Orphanage. This led to the landlord refusing to renew the lease. The Cat Museum closed on 10 June 2018. It rescued & homed over 350 orphaned cats with no funding from the government.

Save the Orphan Baby Kittens

The orphan cats & kittens up for adoption & living at the Lion City Kitty founder's residence will soon be homeless.  Minister (National Development), Mr. Lawrence Wong, has rejected the appeal to continue to allow visitors of The Cat Museum to meet and adopt the orphan cats.

Our SupurrStar Kitties!

Our 20 Resident cats are all #AdoptionAmbassadors!!

It all began with Braddie...


We had an Exotic Shorthair (Persian/British Shorthair) who amused and entertained our clients, staff, interns and everyone including delivery men, with his grumpy cuteness.


Brad or Braddie (named after Brad Pitt) as he is a Pretty Boy, is our first love. Although a “Foreign Talent”, he made us fall in love with the local kitties we have affectionately called “Lion City Kitties”!

Over the next 13 years, we ended up rescuing and trying to find furever families for many more kitties from Purvis Street. 


We also socialized 3 kitties (rescued from a shelter) meant for the first Cat Cafe and adopted many more along the way...
