Four-Footed Prettiness (1937)

British Pathé

Synopsis: Newsreel footage shows an interesting variety of different breeds of cats in clips which have little or no relation to each other.

Reality Cats: While the narrative of this segment is sporadic at best, the shots of all the different types of cats are precious.

There are even a couple of shots of dogs with cats.
