Goodbye to a friend...

“Farley” the Museum Association’s cat, friend and mascot for over 15 years, was brutally slaughtered by two off-leash dogs in front of the corridors of Battery Osgood on August 24th 2002. Farley, a lovable, docile, if overweight feline, was blindsided and ripped apart while waiting for breakfast.

The museum lost more than “just a cat”. Farley was a hard worker who helped rid the batteries of vermin, thrilled thousands of school children with friendly meows, and helped lend a warm touch to the concrete batteries. The staff and volunteers loved and cared for him even though he had the annoying habit of commandeering our chairs.

Anyone who has spent any time at the museum over the years knew Farley.

Off-leash dogs running wild and lack of overall security of museum grounds have been a problem for years. Unfortunately, these issues have long been ignored. For too long some have viewed the grounds as little more than a private area to let their dogs roam, defecate and fight.
