Mia Meow is a colorful cat character created by animal artist BZTAT (Vicki Boatright). The character is based on a real cat named Mia Meow who lives with four other cats in the artist’s home and studio. Rescued as a kitten from a feral colony, Mia has brought much fun and mischief to the artist’s world. The artist was inspired to create the Mia Meow character as a way to bring arts integration activities to children by encouraging storytelling and creative experiences.
BZTAT specializes in boldly colorful customized pet portraits—unique and contemporary whimsical drawings, paintings, and prints of cats, dogs, and other companion animals.
The Massillon Museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East (Ohio Route 172) in downtown Massillon.  Free parking is available on adjacent streets and in the nearby city lots.
