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

MINI BION

“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.
