The feline is by default the icon of Kuching city, by virtual of the fact that cat is called “kucing” in Bahasa Malaysia.

When visiting Kuching, it is legit to drop by its Cat Museum, housed within the Kuching North City Hall building, adjacent to the new Galeri Kuching Utara (Kuching North Gallery).

Cat Museum is a compulsory stop for all cat lovers. After all, the museum is home to thousands of collections, including Hello Kitty and Garfield, possibly the world’s two most famous cats. Yes, Hello Kitty is indeed a cat!

There are also cat artefacts acquired from the National Museum. However, after a first visit, in my opinion, the cat museum doesn’t hold much interest, except when there is an exhibition, usually cat-related.
