If you owned a cat in 1965, and happened to live in Bedford, England, then Dorothy Silkstone’s cat accessory shop was the place to go when your kitty had a fancy dress party or afternoon tea to attend.
Vintage newsreel archive site British Pathé dug up this fascinating look at the life of the fancy cat accessory shop owner, and boy is Dorothy's life hectic- between collaring cats, helping feline customers try on sweaters and take a spin on the cat tree of their dreams, and showing off her purr-fectly glorious collection of home decor dedicated to the almighty cat.
