He has been a well-loved figure in everyday High life for years. His honest gaze and listening ears have comforted many. He is exceptionally well-read and has a keen appreciation for the art in our galleries. However the time has come to say farewell to an old friend. Ellsworth Kitty, our beloved education volunteer is retiring. He has been a familiar face at Toddler Thursday for many years and has never missed a story time. But, don’t fear, Toddlers, parents, and alumni! Ellsworth has been training his replacement and would like to introduce you all to his dear friend Alex Cats. No, he is not the famous contemporary painter whose works we collect in our gallery. He is, however, an exceedingly cuddly and clean grey kitty that loves kids, learning, and playing with yarn balls. We believe he will be a great fit here at the museum, even though he as big paw-prints to fill.
So be sure to give Alex Cats a hearty hello and a nice hug to welcome him to life at the museum!
