Japan is known for many weird things, but lately even the newspapers have been raving about… cats trying to sneak into a museum? Alright, somebody stop the planet, I need to step off for a second! Cats trying to pull a heist is some next-level movie plot I didn’t know I needed in my life. But let’s figure this out first.
There’s this Hiroshima Onomichi City Museum of Art, and at one point, they were displaying a curios collection of art pieces called “Cats — Mitsuaki Iwago Photography Exhibition”. This was years ago, and yet the drama that started back then echoes till this day. Out of nowhere a black cat started coming up to the front door, as if trying to get into the museum. The Guard shooed him of course, because, let’s face it, cats LOVE knocking things over off of high places, so a museum is the last place you want to see these fuzzballs.
As time went by, the cat’s visit became more and more frequent, so the guards gave it a name, Ken-chan, and lots of petting. One day Ken-chan brought a redhead with him. And now both of them were trying to sneak into the museum! I gotta give it to these felines, they’re nothing if not persistent.
Till this day they’re both coming over for their daily dose of snuggles and belly rubs, but as soon as they see an opening they’ll surely run for the money! But for now the guards have nothing to stress about, and the museum even started a Twitter account where all the best pics are being uploaded, and their own merchandise line with Ken-chan and his ginger friend., making full-blown them internet celebs.
