Synopsis: Unused and unissued newsreel footage of a cat show at Shepherd’s Bush, London.
Reality Cats: The newsreel begins with a couple of takes of two women, Irene Ashton and Diana Morrison, looking into a basket to find some Siamese kittens.
Several shots of the show cats are then seen. What’s interesting about this footage is it gives you an idea of how these segments were shot, with an interesting variety of sounds being made to get the cats to look up for the cameras.
Final Mewsings: Cats must wonder why people make such weird noises when cameras are around.
