This 1965 British news report on Dorothy Silkstone’s Cat’s Accessories Shop, recently released by the newsreel footage archive British Pathé, is a wonderful trip back in time to a store in Bedford, Bedfordshire, England completely dedicated to all things cat.
If you have a cat loving friend you can send gift vouchers which will enjoy anything you can think of; from cats cradle is to an ashtray or mantlepiece ornament. From a made to measure pullover for poor pussy whose coat is so warm to almost anything you can think of with a catty connotation. Twitch your whiskers and blink your unbelieving eyes and just watch, remembering the only other supper here could be the cat.
