We asked what content you wanted back in March, and the response was for behind the scenes content and cats. In response, we created "Behind the Scenes at Eastman Museum, featuring Badly Photoshopped Cats." Enjoy some of our past cats, and follow along on social media as the badly photoshopped cats travel around Rochester using #EastmanKitties.
