Synopsis: A silent newsreel clip supposedly showing near-sighted cats being fitted with glasses.
Reality Cats: It’s amazing to think that in the 1930’s someone was actually concerned with the problem of near-sighted cats. But at least one optician was purportedly devoting himself to the cause. He first examines the tabby cat’s eyes.
Then he fits the tabby with a pair of tiny spectacles, making the cat look like a feline version of John Lennon. Of course these look more like sunglasses so it’s unclear if the lenses have any prescription to them.
Another unfortunate tabby is fitted with goggles, turning him into steampunk cat!
Final Mewsings: Maybe Cassandra Cat started this way!
