Today, the mission of the CFA Foundation is to acquire and conserve the history of cats and show the development of the cat fancy through the acquisition of fine art, artifacts, and literature. The collection began in 1990 with 100 books, stud books, copies of the CFA Yearbook and various magazines about cats.
Since those humble beginnings, the Foundation's collection has flourished through the acquisition of a great many additional books and magazines, as well as a significant amount of cat show memorabilia. The Foundation also owns a large collection of cat figurines and artwork. Our goal to establish and maintain a museum where our artifacts can be displayed has been realized through the opening of our museum in Alliance,Ohio.
The public is welcome to visit the CFA Foundation's Feline Historical Museum which is open 10am-4pm Tuesday through Friday, and 9am-12pm on Saturday at 260 East Main Street, Alliance, OH.
There is currently no admission charge to visit the museum; instead we rely on donations to fund our endeavors and the growth of our collection. Donations, monetary or material, may be sent to The CFA Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 2155, Alliance, OH 44601.
