The Cat Museum & Muses
Support this worthy cause

The Cat Museum, Muses & Mansion of Singapore, a volunteer-run cat re-homing centre at Purvis Street in Bugis has recently been asked to close two of its three floors. They will need to operate with just one floor unless enough funds are raised to relocate to a larger space. The centre raises money for its operations by opening to the public four days a week, but it is not sufficient for the move. Visit their Facebook page and find out how you can help!
