1965 News Report On Dorothy Silkstone’s Cat Accessories Shop in Bedford, England

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.
