I was going through some of my late mother’s files when I came across this British newspaper clipping. I think it may have been from the 1970s judging by the way the woman is dressed. I imagine my mother cut this out because I was born in Brighton, and like me, she loved cats. I decided it was too cute not to share.
Following is the text of the article:
Mother, daughter and kitten relax in the sun on the beach at Brighton, England, each in her own beach chair.
The 8-week-old kitten, Florence, used to run away and get lost when taken to the beach. So when Mrs. Brenda Dockerill bought a small beach chair for 3-year-old Karen, she decided it might help if Florence had one of her own, too.
Chairs for kittens being unavailable, Mrs. Dockerill had her husband make one. Florence took to it at once, and now there are no more problems with the kitten when they take her to the beach. She snuggles up with the family and all three take their catnaps together — in their own beach chairs.
