MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
In Victorian-era London, there was a job for “Cat’s Meat Man.” It was like the Ice Cream, but with giving away fresh meat to cats.
- A cat’s meat man sold chopped meat to cat owners
- The meat was usually horse scraps from local slaughterhouses
- They had regular routes and clients, just like a milkman
- When he’d walk his cart up to his regular street, the cats would run out to meet him and brush up against his legs
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
