If you like displaying special items around your home in something other than a cat-proof curio cabinet, I have the purrfect solution for you: museum putty!

Even though I’m not a fan of clutter, I like to have some special items on my shelves, including ceramic cat statues. And all have survived intact, thanks to something called Quake Hold, which is a catchy  name for museum putty.

Quake Hold is non-toxic and is easy to apply on any surface. It works on walls and furniture and it’s easy to remove without leaving any residue.


Allegra is pretty good about carefully making her way around objects. Ruby wasn’t, to her, everything was a toy. I still remember the look on her face when I used museum putty to thwart her efforts of batting a little bowl off the partition between our kitchen and dining room.

Quake Hold is available from Amazon.
