Synopsis: Mrs. Dorothy Soapstone’s cat’s accessories shop in Bedford, Bedfordshire, is showcased in this newsreel where every kind of cat collectible imaginable is featured.
Reality Cats: While this store appears to be every cat lover’s dream the cats don’t seem quite as enthusiastic about it. First a Siamese cat is fitted with a walking collar and harness.
Next a shorthaired tabby is subjected to wearing a bright red woolly sweater. Amazingly during this segment the narrator explains that one can buy vitamized chocolate drops for your cat! Pretty scary!
Two kittens are then seen playing with a pipe cleaner spider.
The family of cats definitely enjoy the house (they would, considering it’s just a cardboard box!) and the scratching post.
Finally a cat electric blanket is shown. Let’s just hope they don’t decide to knead it!
Final Mewsings: This store seems to cater a little more to cat owners than to the cats themselves.
