SALEM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Wendy Casazza Scruton wears the moniker "cat lady" as a badge of honor.
"They bring so much joy to my life," Scruton told WBZ NewsRadio Tuesday.
A lifelong cat fan, Scruton is the woman behind Notso Kitty, an online cat accessory store, and Witch City Kitty, a pop-up cat fair in Salem. Now she has opened the Salem Cat Museum, a pop-up museum dedicated to all things feline.
"There’s some things in here even from my childhood, so there’s things from when I was seven years old in this museum," Scruton said.
The museum at 104 Lafayette St. houses hundreds of cat figurines, books, artwork, and practically everything cat. Visitors can also draw a cat face on the windows and learn about the history of felines in the United States.
"It’s a nice way to have the community involved in our museum," Scruton said.
The museum is open Thursdays to Sundays, with admission free on Thursday and Sunday. Scruton plans to keep the museum going until May.
