Reasons for trip

Day three in Amsterdam began with French toast for breakfast, followed by a short stroll to the Katten Kabinet (cat museum). The Cat Cabinet offers a wide look at the role of the cat in art and in culture through the centuries, and was a real treat for me. Everything here is cat related; there were even two resident cats in the foyer. The Cat Cabinet was founded in commemoration of the ginger cat John Pierpont Morgan (1966-1983). This special cat was the stubborn, headstrong companion of the museum's founder, Bob Meijer. The only downside was that the gallery was really rather small, and only kept our attention for half an hour or so.
