Domestic cats have featured in human life for thousands of years. They can make an incredible impact on many of our lives and even if you don’t have one, you may have enjoyed watching, reading or listening about them online. Have you watched a ‘funny cat’ video, laughed at ‘Grumpy cat’ or simply enjoyed a colleague’s pet making an appearance in a work video call?
It seems appropriate , therefore, on International Cat day, to show a few things ‘cat’ that we have in the archive.
Larry the No.10 Cat - Political scrapbook
Battersea Dogs and Cats Home
WW1 cats - Durham at War website
Cat Behaviour - Cat Protection website
Teapots, Teapots, Teapots - Cheshire Cats
Pi-powered cat feeder
If you haven't had enough cat chat, take a look at our 2020 blog - Cats v Dogs on the archived web.
Fan of dogs, their day is on the 26th August.
